Yes, "module stop" is different from "S0D1ϕ/S0D4ϕ",
both clk_i and avb_counter8's parent clock is same "module stop" clock,
which is <&cpg CPG_MOD 922>, it is a shared gate clock between
avb_counter8 and clk_i

Yes, I know it's not simple, so I want to discuss with you,
how we can proceed on this topic,
by adding avb_counter8, rcar audio can support arbitrary clock rate,
which is a desired feature, IMO

OK, I think I understand your point,
which avb_counter8 / avb_div8/audio_clk_div3 need to be used,
only need to be considered by adg internally.
