And what distinction are you drawing between "first" and "second"
here?  For the device tree, the primary bus should the the one by
which it's addressable - i.e. where the control registers are, not
the data path.

Why would the I2S need to scan for codecs?  Wouldn't it be up to the
codec driver to register with I2S?
