I can say Geiger & his air wing were subordinate to Vandigrift as the ground division commander. The prewar Marine doctrine favored a closely integrated command structure in this situation, with little chain of command confusion wrought from outside influence. I'll check my books & see if there is any detail that might help you.

Is a thesis on the subject with a nice bibliography.
Morison has some nice things to say about AirSols on page 290 of his Vol VI, Breaking The Bismarck Barrier 22 July 42 - 1 May 44 (1950).
Later became ComAirNorSols out of fun places like Piva.
Wiki entry for ComAirSols leaves something to be desired in terms of detail and completeness.
