You have to drop fallback to allwinner,sun8i-h3-spdif at the very least:

+                       #sound-dai-cells = <0>;
+                       compatible = "allwinner,sun50i-h6-spdif",
+                                    "allwinner,sun8i-h3-spdif";
+                       reg = <0x05093000 0x400>;

If the H6 hardware doesn't just implement some optional superset of what H3
does.

regards,
	o.
