I’m a little bit curious about this.  I’m working with the clocking
on the tlv320aic32x4 driver because I’m dealing with a platform that
will be clocking it from a dynamic clock controlled by the CCF.  That
presents some problems because the aic32x4 driver has a table of clock
parameters and those rely on the mclk rate being a precise value.
The mclk might not be able to provide those exact values, so the
aic32x4 driver needs to set its PLLs and dividers accordingly.

The hardware has a couple of clock muxes, a few dividers and the
PLL.  It seems to be able to be modeled by the current CCF
components fairly well.  I’m just trying to wrap my head around
where this all would fit in.  Should the codec driver just register
a bunch of clock components in its initialization somewhere?
I’m thinking that it can’t have its own CCF driver separate from
the codec driver because you won’t have proper access to the
registers over I2C or SPI.  I don’t find a lot of examples in the
codec drivers, and there aren’t very many other drivers in the tree
that seem to register clocks with CCF that I can find.

I’m happy to work through this with the aic32x4 driver.  I just
need some guidance on how to do it so it fits in well with
everything else surrounding it.
