simple-card obviously isn't a CODEC driver...  For generality I think
the clock does need to be exposed to the CODEC driver, otherwise this
will work differently to how other systems are working and we can't
substitute in a different clock on the CODEC side so easily if it
doesn't happen to use the output from the I2S block.
