By device I mean the soc-core platform device, which has to exist before a dai can be
registered with that device.

The difference between the two is that snd_soc_register_dais calls fmt_multiple_name,
but snd_soc_register_dai uses fmt_single_name. The later uses the name of device for
which the dai is registered to generate the dai_device name, while the former uses
the name of the dai_driver.
So by calling snd_soc_register_dai the bluetooth dai_device will be name "soc-core"
instead of "bluetooth-dai". So currently there is no match between the dai_link and
the dai_device, as a result the sound card is not instantiated.

Well the alternative would be a patch looking like this:

-	.cpu_dai_name = "bluetooth-dai",
+	.cpu_dai_name = "soc-core",

Which isn't really nice either.
