Am not going to make myself popular here. It's MCLK and FSYNC (or WCLK as it's
termed for our device) that is required for SRM to lock in the PLL.

So far I've not found a way in the codec driver to be able to get around this.
I spent a very long time with Sathya in the early days (Apollo Lake) looking at
options but nothing would fit which is why I have the solution that's in place
right now. We could probably reduce the number of rechecks before timeout in the
driver but that's really just papering over the crack and there's still the
possibility of noise later when SRM finally does lock.
