I believe that with ASoC V1, I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place, and so 
the only way to make this code work is to bend some rules.  Right now, the 
CS4270 driver does not support platform drivers or the device tree, so there's 
no point in putting a child I2C node for it.  As I mentioned in other posts, I 
will be more than happy to update the CS4270 driver to support this new 
paradigm (which was invented after the CS4270 driver was written) *after* this 
current patchset is applied.
