If there's a user visible control for the same register bit that's a
bug. If there's no user visible control for it then there's nothing to
conflict with.

No, that's not what we're muting playback for - the digital mute is
there specifically to deal with issues with host controllers outputing
noise during startup/teardown. If there are issues with the speaker
output then they need to be addressed at that point, especially given
that the device has bypass paths.

That seems solvable? Though if the issue isn't triggered in connection
with a DAPM event (which sounds like the case) then it's probably not
going to help.

If the issue is triggered by the MCLK being disabled prematurely then
the simplest fix is probably to wire up the CODEC MCLK to the clock API
and manage it during set_bias_level() (probably on transition out of and
into _STANDBY) - that should have a similar effect to leaving it enabled
all the time.
