The sidetone module is a separate target from the McBSP on the interconnect
but there are also direct lines between sidetone and McBSP devices :)
Here's what I'm seeing looking at the AP table on dm3730 hardware.

McBSP target module:
0x49022000, ap 5 06.0, McBSP2
0x49024000, ap 7 08.0, McBSP3

Sidetone target modules:
0x49028000, ap 39 0a.0, mcbsp2_sidetone
0x4902a000, ap 41 12.0, mcbsp3_sidetone

And that seems to match TRM "21.6.4 SIDETONE Register Description",
"Table 2-5. L4-Peripheral Memory Space Mapping", and "Table 9-114. Region
Allocation for L4-Per Interconnect".

The McBSP and sidetone don't have parent child relationship at the
interconnect level. So I think the best option would be to have the McBSP
driver implement mcbsp_sidetone_register/unregister() etc functions. That
can then set up the necessary callbacks. Then the sidetone driver can call
them on probe/exit and set up the necessary callbacks and whatever might
be needed.

If they are currently handled in a single driver, you you need to
pm_runtime_get both modules. So having two separate drivers might make
things a lot simpler.

If you don't treat the McBSP and sidetone as separate modules, things can
easily fail. For example, doing a read-back to flush of posted write to
sidetone registers flushes nothing for McBSP and the other way around.

That does not sound like a nice option at all :(
