As I said when replying to your previous mail and I'm sure some earlier
ones too you need to fix your MUA to word wrap at less than 80 columns.
I've yet again reflowed your text so that it's legible.

You don't like the names the core is coming up with.  Make better ones.

The card is only registering one DAI, all the other DAIs are attached to
other devices in the system.

The bluetooth chip is an actual device which I can point to on the
board and schematic, having a struct device to represent a device that's
actually present doesn't seem like a great leap.

It does mean it's named after the board.
