No, codec drivers shouldn't be tied to a specific platform in either
version - the main new feature in v2 from the point of view of codec
support is that it allows a machine to have more than one codec at once,
but that's not a change that affects the codec driver.

Since the codecs are not tied to the machine, the user must then add to the Kconfig of the 
ARCH to select which codec they want to use?

Using s3c2410_defconfig will only let you select the devices that are added in the Kconfig for the s3c24xx.

If the codec isn't tied to the machine, why can't we select from a list of supported codecs?
Just trying to get a better understanding of how this works.
