[alsa-devel] [PATCH] ASoC: sgtl5000: defer the probe if clock is not found

It's not always the case that clock is already available when sgtl5000
get probed at the first time, e.g. the clock is provided by CPU DAI
which may be probed after sgtl5000.  So let's defer the probe when
devm_clk_get() call fails and give it chance to try later.

It fixes the following problem on imx28.

[    1.927637] sgtl5000 0-000a: Failed to get mclock: -2
[    1.934280] sgtl5000: probe of 0-000a failed with error -2

This is a fix for 3.11.
