Sebastian,

s/has/hasn't & s/hasn't/has

Are 2 compatibles enough, i.e. "mvebu-audio" and "mbevu-audio-spdif"?

Don't know, but, sure, there are still a lot of "mrvl".

Once, I got this message:

But Russell did not tell clearly which name could be the best.

BTW, as we are naming the clocks, the 'clk' in "xxxclk" seems redondant...

I don't think that we need any reference to the codec here. The glue is
done by the audio device. For example, using the (soon?) extended
simple audio card:

spdif: spdif {
compatible = "linux,spdif-dit";
};
sound {
compatible = "linux,simple-audio";
audio-controller = <&i2s1>;
audio-codec = <&spdif>;
codec-dai-name = "dit-hifi";
};
