Sorry not to reply to this earlier! To look into this a bit more, I reviewed 
the clock definitions and found that we were missing a "bitclk" for AIC/I2S, 
and the gating wasn't being done for the existing I2S clock. So, there's a 
patch to add a new clock and to update the existing one.

It will probably need checking just to make sure.

I hadn't looked into interacting with the sound chip over I2C, not really 
knowing where to start, but we will obviously need reliable I2C support to 
have a chance of setting it up.

Yes, I would imagine so.

The patch should fix the clocks to make them available. About the node

I guess we will only need JZ4730-specific identification if there are some 
differences, but you probably know more about this than me at the moment. :-)

This looks OK. I add the missing AIC clock in the patch, which is the

I hope this is OK, too!
