Thanks for the quick feedback Greg!

will do.

This is indeed my main question on this code (see cover letter) and why 
I tagged the series as RFC. I find it odd to create an int-sdw.0 
platform device to model the SoundWire master, and a sdw-master:0 device 
whose purpose is only to expose the properties of that master. it'd be 
simpler if all the properties were exposed one level up.

Vinod and Sanyog might be able to shed some light on this?
