Which platform are you testing?  If it's SKL, BSW or later, multiple
codecs are on a single HD-audio bus.  In general, you have to adjust
the runtime PM of all these codecs in addition to the runtime PM of
the controller.  Some of them are immediately runtime PM enabled but
some of them aren't, left the default as is.

It might be that your desktop environment adjusts the runtime PM of
HD-audio stuff, often depending on the power state.  But when you
reload, this adjustment is also lost, so you'd have to adjust
