Yes the bus will create 'soundwire slave' device type (In acpi case
created from ACPI walk) and we do link the ACPI as the firmware node.
This is 'not' created for properties but for soundwire representation of
slave devices. This is the one code driver attaches to.

Yes this would the companion ACPI device

I think both are same nodes. Since the SoundWire slave is a child of
master it appears under int-sdw.0 as well
