The main thing is that if the DAI driver does it then it's less code in
the machine drivers using it - what tends to happen otherwise is that
quite a few machine drivers end up replicating the same logic.  Hardware
designers tend to do a lot of cut'n'paste with these things so even if
the CODEC is different the clocking is often very similar.
