This is a optional clock for CODEC which depends on hardware design.
There are 3 options for this clock, wm8904 as an example.
1. Using internal FLL, so won't use this clock.
2. Using external oscillator, no need to retrieve this clock.
3. Using SoC provide this clock (we use this case).

After considering these 3 options, if we put this into CODEC driver to
do it, I think it will be more complicate to do logic judgement. Do you
think so?

And, in machine driver, it will depends on the clock option to decide
whether to call snd_soc_dai_set_pll and snd_soc_dai_set_sysclk.

And also the <Documentation/soud/alsa/soc/machine.txt> mentions the
machine drivers responsibility (one is for clocking) as following:
The ASoC machine (or board) driver is the code that glues together all the
component drivers (e.g. codecs, platforms and DAIs). It also describes the
relationships between each componnent which include audio paths, GPIOs,
interrupts, clocking, jacks and voltage regulators.

So, I think put this into machine driver will be better. Do you have any
other idea? Or if I misunderstand something, please point it out.


Best Regards,
Bo Shen
