yeah this all is bit complicated and should not be so. As Srini pointed
out, we have two symbols, SOUNDWIRE as a menuconfig item which enables
the subsystem and then SOUNDWIRE_BUS which compiles in the code.

Unfortunately I dont seem to recall the advantages of this approach so
it might be easier to drop SOUNDWIRE_BUS and then let codecs do select
REGMAP_SOUNDWIRE and depends on SOUNDWIRE
