For modern devices set_bias_level() is often a better choice if you're
only going to do one of that or hw_params(), especially on the shutdown
paths - devices these days typically need the clocks for a lot more
stuff.  hw_params() by itself obviously has issues for analogue only
paths too.

I'd generally expect to see new machine drivers doing this stuff in
set_bias_level() and possibly also having additional startup code in
hw_params() depending on how flexible the clocking is.
