Hi Fabio,

thanks for the quick response.

this is surprising. How come the ssi1_ipg_per clock is not turned off by
clk_disable_unused()? Where is it used? Do you have

<&clks 55>

anywhere in your DT?

It seems to the that imx25 uses a different clock hierarchy for ssi than other
imx chips.

Others don't have ssiX_ipg_per.

True. This needs clarification.

I found that, in oder to get a tx clock out of the SSI, both ssi1_ipg_per and
ssi1_ipg clocks must be active.

The fsl_ssi driver only activates ssi1_ipg.

If I activate ssi1_ipg_per in the bootloader, clk_disable_unused() deactivates it.

(My codec chip does not use a dedicated clock line. It takes the bit clock that
is the output of SSI. Are you maybe using ssi1_ipg_per for your codec and
enable it there?)

In my first mail, I was wondering about imx25 uart1, where we also have
uart1_ipg and uart_ipg_per and the clock seeting is

clk[uart1_ipg] = imx_clk_gate("uart1_ipg", "ipg", ccm(CCM_CGCR2), 14);

In this case, both uart1 and uart_ipg_per are listed in the device tree

uart1: serial@43f90000 {
clocks = <&clks 120>, <&clks 57>;
clock-names = "ipg", "per";

uart_ipg_per 57
uart1_ipg 120

and the driver enables both clocks explicitly. So they are not unused.

Doing something like this is not an option for ssi, this will not work with
imx31, 35 etc.

Therefore, I suggest setting ssi1_ipg_per as parent of ssi1_ipg.

Best regards,
