That sounds like something that could be better described with
properties (including for example the existing bindings used for setting
up things like analogue outputs and DAPM routes)?

These feel more like things that fit with compatible, though please take
a look at Morimoto-san's (CCed) work on generic sound cards for more
complex devices:

This is not yet implemented but it'd be good to make sure that the
Qualcomm systems can be handled too in future.

OTOH if you have lots of compatibles then it can get hard to work out
exactly which one corresponds to a given board.
