I would rather refer there just "Fsref = CLKDIV_IN / (128*Q)" as the
condition where PLL can be disabled (or is mandatory where it must be

Referring to data sheet page 27 is not good as it's correct only for certain
version of AIC33 spec and driver supports other AIC3x chips as well :-)

I mean even if the I2S interface Fs meets the MCLK/256 condition, the audio
sample rate may be lower and it may be still required to set ADC and DAC
