[sorry, I should have copied alsa-devel at alsa-project.org previously].

I agree.  I guess the patch set 6 makes more sense.  Also, you might
consider adding a printk in the 'fsl_sgtl5000_probe()'.  I guess that
devm_snd_soc_register_card() will fail if the board is not present?  As
the board is not 'standard' people may come asking why the audio fails
on the 'VF610-TWR'.

+	ret = devm_snd_soc_register_card(&pdev->dev, &fsl_sgt1500_card);
+	if (ret) {
+		dev_err(&pdev->dev, "register soc sound card failed :%d\n"
+                               "TWR-AUDIO-SGTL board required.\n",
+				ret);
+		return ret;
+	}

Especially, you can make one kernel that handles both cases w/wo
TWR-AUDIO-SGTL board attached.

Thanks for your work.
