IIUC Greg meant we should represent a soundwire master device type and
use that here. Just like we have soundwire slave device type. Something
like:

struct sdw_master {
struct device dev;
struct sdw_master_prop *prop;
...
};

In show function you get master from dev (container of) and then use
that to access the master properties. So int.sdw.0 can be of this type.
