I don't understand what you're saying here - what is the intended
difference between SOUNDWIRE and SOUNDWIRE_BUS?  Having the separate
option for _INTEL for your controller makes sense but otherwise the
normal pattern for a bus would be that you'd have the root config
option for the bus (which would enable the core code for the bus) and
then everything else is hidden behind that.
