SSI has mainly two different clock inputs internally (not external
pads such as bclk or lrclk): IP block clock (ipg_clk in Reference
Manual) and sys clock (ccm_ssi_clk in Reference Manual). According
to RM, ccm_ssi_clk: "module/system clock for bit clock generation".

The ipg clock is merely used to access registers, and has nothing
(directly) to do with external clock outputs. The driver shall not
change the ipg clock as the system ipg clock (its parent clock)
might be messed and even system time would get weird -- happened
once when the fsl_spdif driver used to call clk_set_rate() on its
ipg clock. Although the clock controller should have some kind of
protection in my opinion, we just avoid IP clock rate change in all
audio drivers as well.

On the other hand, the sys clock (baudclk in the driver) should be
configured whenever it's related to external clock outputs. When I
implemented this set_sysclk() for fsl_ssi.c, I used it to set this
sys clock (baudclk) by a machine driver, in order to set bit clock.
Then someone patched the driver by moving all the code to set_bclk()
to make machine drivers simpler. Now the set_sysclk() is remained
to give machine drivers a chance to override clock configurations
in the hw_params(). This could be used in TDM or some other special
cases (It could also have a purpose for backwards compatibility).

So here, we should set baudclk (BCLK generator).
