I took your advice to look at GreyBus and used the 'gb host device' as
the model to implement the 'sdw master' add/startup/remove interfaces we
needed.

so yes in this patch we just add a type for the slave, the interesting
part is in the next patches.

yes this cannot happen at this point, it's more of a paranoid test. In
theory a SoundWire solution could enable a 'monitor' device as defined
in the standard.
