Hmm yeah the McBSP clock mux could be racy as the mux register for
McBSP is treated as a clock. This register muxes the clock between
external pin and internal clock. Considering that this should be
selectable at board level as the external clock probably needs to be
used if level shifters are being used, it should be really handled by
The other use for hsmmc.c and pdata-quirks.c for the one time mux for
MMC clock from the MMC clock pin. That can be done with pinctrl-single
from the MMC driver too for DT based booting.
Then we just have the save and restore of the registers for

It seems we could just do a read-only check for McBSP in the clock
code for the mux register, or even completely drop that code from
cclock3xxx_data.c and start using the pinctrl for that mux.
Paul & Tero, got any comments here?
