The current CS4270 driver doesn't support device trees.  When I wrote 
it, the idea of putting I2C info in the device tree was not finalized, 
and since the driver is supposed to be cross-platform, I decided to do 
it the old-fashioned way.  Before I update the code, however, I'm 
waiting for:

1) The current code to be accepted into the tree
2) ASoC is updated to V2
3) The current drivers are updated to support ASoC V2.

I think ASoC V2 will make it easier to support device trees, but I'm not 
ready yet for that.

The CS4270 is a child of both the I2C bus *and* the SSI bus.  It needs 
to have two nodes, one under each.  Your're right in that there needs to 
be a link, but until the code is updated to ASoC V2, I think it's 
premature to add that support.
