And you're right, of course: the audio output formatting module of the ADV748x
devices provides a set of clock lines related to the I2S pins: the already
discussed master clock, left-right channel clock and the serial clock (bit

Just to try it out (I'll set #clock-cells to 1), I registered a fixed rate
clock in the driver, added a clock provider:


clk = clk_register_fixed_rate(state->dev,
NULL /* parent_name */,
0 /* flags */,
12288000 /* rate */);
of_clk_add_provider(state->dev->of_node, of_clk_src_simple_get, clk);

And removed the audio_clk_c frequency setting. I also replaced the audio_clk_c
in the list of input clocks of the R-Car-side sound card with the phandle of
the adv7482 main node:


&i2c4 {
status = "okay";

adv7482_hdmi_decoder: video-receiver@70 {
#clock-cells = <0>; // to be replaced with <1>

&rcar_sound {
clocks = ..., <&adv7482_hdmi_decoder>, ...;

As everything continues to work as before, I assume that at least the clock
dependencies were resolved.

Is there a way to verify that the added input clock is actually used?
IOW, if its frequency is actually has been programmed into the ssi4 (R-Car
receiving hardware) registers, and not just a left-over from previuos attempts
or plain default setting?

As the ADV748x devices seem to provide also the clocks for video outputs, will
it make any sense to place the clock definition into the port node?
Or should all provided clocks be indexed in the main device node?
