I have tried to compile, which went fine, and I was able to boot.
But I did not have installed the firmware...

Some observations:
1. the kernel reports to be letux-4.17.0 and not 4.17.3

root at letux:~# uname -a
Linux letux 4.17.0-letux+ #2535 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jul 9 17:32:57 CEST 2018 armv7l GNU/Linux
root at letux:~# 

I'd suggest to merge/rebase on top of letux-4.17.3
(http://git.goldelico.com/?p=letux-kernel.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/letux-4.17.3)
because that version includes some significant fixes and this may be part of your trouble.

2. aess driver is loaded (but not firmware)

root at letux:~# dmesg|fgrep aess
[    6.044004] omap-abe-twl6040 sound: Direct firmware load for omap_aess-adfw.bin failed with error -2
[    6.095322] omap-abe-twl6040 sound: Failed to load firmware omap_aess-adfw.bin: -2
root at letux:~# 

root at letux:~# lsmod|fgrep abe 
snd_soc_omap_abe_twl6040    20480  0 
snd_soc_twl6040        28672  1 snd_soc_omap_abe_twl6040
snd_soc_omap_mcbsp     24576  1 snd_soc_omap_abe_twl6040
snd_soc_omap_aess      61440  2 snd_soc_omap_abe_twl6040,snd_soc_omap_mcpdm
root at letux:~# 

3. aplay does only report the HDMI encoder

root at letux:~# aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: H58040000encode [HDMI 58040000.encoder], device 0: HDMI 58040000.encoder snd-soc-dummy-dai-0 []
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
root at letux:~#

I hope this helps to move forwards.

BR,
Nikolaus
