Why require sub-nodes? it seem over-complex.

OK, I see those two are CPU-/CODEC-specific. However, you could easily
just have different property names for the two.
I assume you didn't like my idea of not putting the DAI names into the
DT, but using extra arguments after the phandles instead? Doing so would
be more alike most existing DT bindings.

Aren't those a property of the CPU<->CODEC link, hence the clock
frequency is identical, and the two "master" properties are the inverse
of each-other in between CPU and CODEC. Specifying these right in the
top-level node seems simpler.
