Probably both.

Yes.

Vybrid:

+-------+-----+------+-----+-^^^--+-----+-----+-^^^--+------+

i.MX:

If IBIF is set, then it's cleared (probably by accident).
But in the "if (temp & I2SR_IAL)" condition, I focus on
the IBAL flag, not IBIF.

Yes

Agree. IBAL is cleared by intention, IBIF by accident (if set).
Do you see any problem if IBIF is also cleared?

Sorry, even if this is correct, it looks hard to understand for me.

I also don't own a Vybrid system. I consider my patch correct in terms of
clearing the IBAL flag (which was wrong before). Additional work may be
useful for NOT clearing the other status flag. I also would like to keep
this task for somebody who owns a Vybrid system. But the other patches
in this series fixes some more important problems, so maybe you could
give your acknowledge anyhow.

Best regards
Christian
