Well, the datasheet I have calls it either "I2S V40" or "IIS MULTI AUDIO 
INTERFACE". I like the latter much more, because it actually says what's 
the difference compared to previous I2S IPs.

I'm not strongly against using the v4 suffix, but since we decided to use 
more meaningful compatible values elsewhere, I think this way would be 
better for sound drivers as well.
