It's not a separate physical device or IP and doesn't exist outside of
the MFD, it's just how Linux is currently choosing to divide up the chip
right now but that's totally open to change even in future versions of
Linux. Clocks are a big issue with audio stuff, right now sections of
the clock tree get handled in the CODEC driver but we're going to want
to push them out to a clock driver so we're not reimplementing handling
for clocks.
