Not in ASoC V1.  You have to understand, ASoC V1 was designed without any 
consideration for runtime-bindings and other OF goodies.  All connections 
between the drivers are static, literally.  In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if 
some ASoC drivers cannot be compiled as modules.

So all I'm trying to do now is get my driver, with warts and all, into the tree 
so that I can focus with Liam et al to get a real ASoC V2 up and running.
