I am not sure this is correct

ACPI defines the slaves devices under
/sys/bus/acpi/PRP0001, e.g.

/sys/bus/acpi/devices/PRP00001:00/device:17# ls
adr mipi-sdw-dp-5-sink-subproperties
intel-endpoint-descriptor-0 mipi-sdw-dp-6-source-subproperties
intel-endpoint-descriptor-1 mipi-sdw-dp-7-sink-subproperties
mipi-sdw-dp-0-subproperties mipi-sdw-dp-8-source-subproperties
mipi-sdw-dp-1-sink-subproperties path
mipi-sdw-dp-1-source-subproperties physical_node
mipi-sdw-dp-2-sink-subproperties power
mipi-sdw-dp-2-source-subproperties subsystem
mipi-sdw-dp-3-sink-subproperties uevent
mipi-sdw-dp-4-source-subproperties

but the sysfs for slaves is shown as
/sys/bus/acpi/devices/PRP00001:00/int-sdw.0/sdw:0:25d:700:0:0# ls
bank_delay_support master_count sink_ports
ch_prep_timeout mipi_revision source_ports
clk_stop_mode1 modalias src-dp2
clk_stop_timeout p15_behave src-dp4
dp0 paging_support subsystem
driver power test_mode_capable
firmware_node reset_behave uevent
hda_reg simple_clk_stop_capable wake_capable
high_PHY_capable sink-dp1
index_reg sink-dp3

and in sys/bus/soundwire/devices/sdw:0:25d:700:0:0# ls
bank_delay_support master_count sink_ports
ch_prep_timeout mipi_revision source_ports
clk_stop_mode1 modalias src-dp2
clk_stop_timeout p15_behave src-dp4
dp0 paging_support subsystem
driver power test_mode_capable
firmware_node reset_behave uevent
hda_reg simple_clk_stop_capable wake_capable
high_PHY_capable sink-dp1
index_reg sink-dp3

So I would think we *do* create a new device for each slave instead of
using the one that's already exposed by ACPI.

yes, that's agreed.
