Humm, confused...In the existing code bus and master are synonyms, see
e.g. following code excerpts:

* sdw_add_bus_master() - add a bus Master instance
* @bus: bus instance
* Initializes the bus instance, read properties and create child
* devices.

struct sdw_bus {
struct device *dev; <<< pointer here
unsigned int link_id;
struct list_head slaves;
struct mutex bus_lock;
struct mutex msg_lock;
const struct sdw_master_ops *ops;
const struct sdw_master_port_ops *port_ops;
struct sdw_bus_params params;
struct sdw_master_prop prop;

The existing code creates a platform_device in
drivers/soundwire/intel_init.c, and it's assigned by the following code:

static int intel_probe(struct platform_device *pdev)
struct sdw_cdns_stream_config config;
struct sdw_intel *sdw;
int ret;

sdw = devm_kzalloc(&pdev->dev, sizeof(*sdw), GFP_KERNEL);
sdw-> = &pdev->dev;
sdw-> = &pdev->dev;

I really don't see what you are hinting at, sorry, unless we are talking
about major surgery in the code.
