There is an issue we overlooked. In sound/soc/codecs/mt6359.c,
mt6359_parse_dt() cannot read the DT properties
(https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/broonie/sound.git/tree/sound/soc/codecs/mt6359.c?h=for-next#n2640).

The original DTS is as following:
pmic {
compatible = "mediatek,mt6359";

mt6359codec: mt6359codec {
compatible = "mediatek,mt6359-sound"; (1)
mediatek,dmic-mode = <1>;
mediatek,mic-type-0 = <2>;
}
}
After removing the line at (1), mt6359_parse_dt() cannot read the DT properties.

The PMIC drivers/mfd/mt6397-core.c:
- "mediatek,mt6359"
- has the struct mfd_cell of mt6359-sound
- adds all mfd_cells via devm_mfd_add_devices().

The audio codec sound/soc/codecs/mt6359.c:
- "mediatek,mt6359-sound"


Here are a few options we can come out with.
1. adds back the compatible string in the DTS
2. gets of_node of parent in mt6359.c, and iterates all children nodes
to get the desired properties
3. parses all children nodes in the PMIC driver, and put them into
either platform_data or device properties
(https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/broonie/sound.git/tree/include/linux/mfd/core.h?h=for-next#n77)
- The PMIC is common for several sub-devices. It makes less sense to
handle subdevice specific logic in the common code.
4. others

Could you share with us what would you suggest for fixing the issue?
