I don't see a MODULE_EXPORT_NS so we'd have to change every single

If we are talking about adding the namespaces just about the top-level
functions used by Intel, yes we have less than 10 and since they were
renamed it's no big deal.

But if we want to use this namespace for lower-level components of the
SoundWire code, we have 17 exports in cadence_master.c and more than 27
for the core parts. With the Makefile changes shared last week you'd
have 3 changes, I find it more manageable but it's true that the
information would be split with the IMPORT_NS in the code and the
namespace definition in the Makefile.

we can still use SOUNDWIRE for the namespaces, that'd be fine. you're
right to call us on acronyms, it's a bad habit.
