I meant solution in the context of the codec driver. The approach or
expectation (maybe more suitable wording) for the driver is that the required
clocking can be enabled prior to the DAI widget for the codec being powered via
DAPM as part of an audio path. This approach has been there since the beginning,
for want of a better option, and I've always highlighted this need when
platforms are using our device with SRM.

You're right though that this isn't taken care of in existing mainline Linux
machine files that use this device with SRM.
