Okay, I will extend the existing clock driver to support XCLKOUT.

Of the many parents of XCLKOUT, we need to set XXTI clock as the parent.
Is it okay if we pass two clocks "mclk" (XCLKOUT) and "mclk_parent"
(XXTI) to sound-card driver via DT and do the necessary reparenting
during the sound-card driver probe call?

Else, we can push that change to bootloader (to set the XCLKOUT mux
register) and only enable/disable the clock in sound-card driver.

Let me know your opinion on this.
