RM says that the word length is fixed to 32 in I2S Master mode.
So I used it here. But I think using it with the slots could be
wrong here as you stated. What kind of clock rates (bit and lr)
does a TDM case have?

The problem of slot width here is handled in the set_tdm_slot()
at all. So I tried to ignored that. But we probably do need it
when calculating things with the slot number.

Could you please give me a few set of examples of how you set
set_sysclk(), set_tdm_slot() with the current driver? The idea
here is to figure out a way to calculate the bclk in hw_params
without getting set_sysclk() involved any more.

It's more than a clock_id in my opinion. The driver now sets
the bit clock rate via set_sysclk() other than the MCLK rate

Unfortunately, it looks like a work around to me. I understand
the idea of leaving set_sysclk() out there to override the bit
clock is convenient, but it is not a standard ALSA design and
may eventually introduce new problems like today.

The idea here is to drop the set_sysclk() for all user cases
including TDM cases. So we need a solid patch to calculate the
bit clock rate in hw_params() for TDM user cases..
