Hmms so I only spot reg use at different level changing above. Well
that's not according to Documentation/devicetree/bindings/graph.txt,
the reg numbering is per endpoint.

Sounds like the we have the example not following graph.txt in
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/sound/audio-graph-card.txt while
the code is now behaving as in graph.txt.

Eventually it could have ops though. For things like capture of the tdm
slot data for recording audio call for example, I don't know how that's
supposed to work though. I guess mcbsp could be the clock master too,
and for those cases it would have ops.

But right now in droid4 voice call case mcbsp is just the i2s transport,
and everything happens betwee the modem and the cpcap pmic.

Sounds like audio-graph-card.txt is just out of sync with graph.txt
as we do have several working examples?

Well it would not necessarily be a dummy mcbsp dai in all cases it seems
to me. But yeah nothing for the second dai to do right now for droid4
voice call as it's all between the modem and the pmic.

Probably the easiest one to use right now is the Maemo-leste devuan based
test image using v5.5 kernel + modem and audio patches:

https://leste.maemo.org/Motorola_Droid_4

Just use a decent speed micro-sd card rated "a1" for example.
