It's not super likely but if the hardware guys make a new spin
out chip with an extra clock pin which is possible. But my
problem here is there really is no down side to this check, we
have two things that need to be in sync and if the compiler can
warn me if they are not in sync that is clearly a win.

Yeah I guess its a judgement call but there is not really any
reason we need to proceed in the case of an error. I will update
to fail probe here.

Ok I will add a print for a missing MCLK2.
