All the clocks are there, they're only driven by the Codec, and they look
fine. And thus, the CPU DAI is set to SND_SOC_DAIFMT_CBM_CFM.

What puzzles me is that the whole system works when I cat /dev/urandom
to /dev/dsp (the DMA pointer is moving forward just as expected), only
when using aplay it doesn't do anything.
