When WM8960 is working as master mode and target sample rate is 44100Hz or 48000Hz, it's found no sound can be heard on some i.MX boards.
Impact Software Baseline: Linux 4.1.15_2.0.0 release or previous versions.
Impact Hardware Platform: MCIMX6UL-EVKB, MCIMX6ULL-EVK and MX7SABRE boards which have WM8960 as Audio Codec.
When WM8960 is working as master mode, if input MCLK is 12.288MHz and configure "PLLPRESCALE =2 and SYSCLKDIV[1:0] =1", wrong BCLK and LRCLK output maybe got on some boards. And then it causes no sound output.
After change the WM8960 PLL setting from “PLLPRESCALE =2 and SYSCLKDIV[1:0] =1” to “PLLPRESCALE =1 and SYSCLKDIV[1:0] =2”, the failure parts can work normally. See attached patch.
The formal patch is also included into the releases starting from L4.1.15_2.0.1. See http://git.freescale.com/git/cgit.cgi/imx/meta-fsl-bsp-release.git/tree/imx/meta-bsp/recipes-kernel/linux/files?id=imx_4.1.15_2.0.1
