Could you please explain this more?
I don't get it how apb_pclk is related to AUDSS block clock and why
enabling PL330_DMA fixes the issue (I suspect that enabling PL330_DMA
enables PL330 DMA AMBA device so the amba_probe() keeps apb_pclk clock
enabled but what is its relation to AUDSS block clock?).

I observe more and more discrepancies between exynos_defconfig and
multi_v7_defconfig when it comes to Exynos specific options. I wanted
to avoid this by proposing exynos_defconfig removal when multiplatform
support was added to Exynos. Unfortunately there was no agreement on
this at that time. It would really be great if all Exynos users run on
a common configuration so the testing is done more efficiently.

Yes, moreover it is not clear yet that enabling PL330 DMA to resolve
the hang issue is the right approach (to be honest it looks like
a workaround for the lack of proper clock dependencies in a code).
