I think changing the CONFIG_SND_SOCTWL4030=m to =y might fix this. Will test when I test a similar change for smsc95xx.

This worked, partially. Will need to add ucm configs (similar to panda).

To enable audio in the kernel, need CONFIG_SND_SOCTWL4030=y (and several modules surrounding it).

See attached diff (includes fix for this & lp:838200 plus a few other things).

This seems like a dependency issue. Loading snd-soc-omap-mcbsp and snd-soc-omap in addition to snd-soc-omap3beagle gets ALSA going.

Still need UCM configs, but at least the modules doesn't need to be compiled into the kernel. Have not looked into how to solve the missing dependency.
