Sorry, here the comment is wrong:
        /* SAIF MCLK should be either 32*fs or 48*fs */
        if (saif->mclk_in_use && (mclk % 32 != 0) && (mclk % 48 != 0))
                return -EINVAL;
should be changed to:
/* SAIF MCLK should be either 32x or 48x */

BTW, do you mean the duplicate ratio checking is the following line?
        /* select the multiple of the base frequency rate of MCLK */
        switch (mclk / rate) {
This is used to calculate the real ratio for mclk.
(The range is from 32x to 512x)

Yes, the code is a little confuse.
Since the mxs_saif_set_clk sets both saif clk ratio and saif mclk ratio,
I placed the mclk ratio checking in mxs_saif_set_clk rather than in
mxs_saif_get_mclk to avoid duplication.
And saif clk ratio needs to meet mclk ratio.
Maybe I need to add more comments in code as follows.
         * The SAIF clock should be either 384*fs or 512*fs
         * For 32x mclk, set saif clk as 512x.
         * For 48x mclk, set saif clk as 384x.

Do you have any suggestion to make it more easy to read?

OK. But how to treat our case that although there are two separate SAIFs used
for each direction, they cannot work on different sample rate?
Is there any parameter like symmetric_rates to tell ASoc core that 
do not play a different rate stream While another SAIF is already working?

Ok, understand. Thanks.
How about adding handle IRQ_NONE as follows:
