I'm wondering why it is safe to call DAI's .digital_mute()
callback, which explicitly changes state of the "DAC soft mute enable"
bit (DACMU) ?

And on the other hand it is not correct to just mute the speakers?

The exact definition for the event, which I'm forcing above:

SOC_SINGLE("Speaker Playback Switch", WM8940_SPKVOL, 6, 1, 1),

And there is no SOC_SINGLE_AUTODISABLE() macro available.

The issue I'm trying to fix:

- The mclk clock is stopped (after some time) by imx SOC when I end
'speaker-test' program with ctrl+c.

- When the clock is not provided (after ~1sec) I do hear a single short
noise from speakers.

- The other solution (which also works) would be to enable clock once
(during probe) and then do not disable it till system is powered
off (yes it is a hack :-) ).

I'm wondering if this can be fixed by some 'amixer' user space switch?

Thanks in advance for help.

Best regards,

Lukasz Majewski
