This seems far from ideal - it's starting the PLL at system boot and
just leaving it running.  This will be power inefficient when the system
is not playing audio as the PLL will be consuming power but not used for
anything.  You could also do the same thing with the MCLK.

Note also that a 12.288MHz clock is only suitable for 8kHz based sample
rates, for CD audio 44.1kHz based rates like most media files 11.2896MHz
should be chosen.  The driver may want to switch dynamically at runtime
to support the widest possible range of rates.

devm_clk_get() - this'd free the clock that's leaked on removal.
