The auto extension is handed by the platform_deivce_alloc() API.

platform_device_alloc("acp3x_i2s_playcap", PLATFORM_DEVID_AUTO);

You have 2 choices available to you based on whether your device is an
MFD or not:

If yes, move it (or a part of it) to drivers/mfd.
If no, then use the platform_device_*() API.
