I Noticed that.

Are you able to be build SOUNDWIRE_BUS as moudles?

I think the issue is that SOUNDWIRE_BUS default is set to SOUNDWIRE
This would never allow SOUNDWIRE_BUS to set as module if SOUNDWIRE is bool.

May be that is the issue.

config SOUNDWIRE_BUS
tristate
default SOUNDWIRE
select REGMAP_SOUNDWIRE

I agree, more doc is better.

Which probe function are you referening too ?

Not sure I get it, Only way to get to this probe is that id_table from
driver matches slave id which is done as part of sdw_bus_match().
So the id should be valid and calling sdw_get_device_id() is redundant here?

If you are making power domain as mandatory for all the devices, then it
makes sense to err out. But not all the devices might have pm domains
associated, so continuing on other errors makes sense.. All of the bus
drivers in the kernel do that ex: ./drivers/base/platform.c,
./drivers/mmc/core/sdio_bus.c, ./drivers/spi/spi.c...

Yep, that solution makes sense, Looks like I can do the same for slimbus
too.
