First, I want to officially retract this patch.  I've talked with
Grant, and we've come up with a different approach to this problem.

Second, how about this binding for the virtual sound node?  It would
be a root-level node.

	sound-devices {
		sound0 {
			ssi = &ssi0;
			playback-dma = &dma00;
			capture-dma = &dma01;
			codec = &cs4270;
