OK, It’s an external MCLK source, so why not just handle that in the machine driver? 
Usually you would want the clock enabled/disabled in the machine driver so if you don’t get it, you can bail out there. 
At least that is how I do our MCLK’s. Since you are only using the freq of the clock to derive modes, just put the clock initialization outside and just pass in the freq like you do in set_sysclk
