In the earlier versions of the patch, the code looks like this and there
was an open on what to do with a master-specific event.

static int sdw_uevent(struct device *dev, struct kobj_uevent_env *env)
{
+ struct sdw_master_device *md;
struct sdw_slave *slave;
char modalias[32];

- if (is_sdw_slave(dev)) {
+ if (is_sdw_md(dev)) {
+ md = to_sdw_master_device(dev);
+ /* TODO: do we need to call add_uevent_var() ? */
+ } else if (is_sdw_slave(dev)) {
slave = to_sdw_slave_device(dev);
+
+ sdw_slave_modalias(slave, modalias, sizeof(modalias));
+
+ if (add_uevent_var(env, "MODALIAS=%s", modalias))
+ return -ENOMEM;
} else {
dev_warn(dev, "uevent for unknown Soundwire type\n");
return -EINVAL;
}

Vinod suggested this was not needed and suggested the code for uevents
be moved to be slave-specific, which is what this patch does.

As mentioned above, this move was suggested by Vinod. I don't have a
specific need for uevents for the master and there's no functionality
limitation, that said this is way beyond my comfort zone so I will
follow recommendations, if any.
