How to connect MCLK of SAI when i.MX7 is slave?

Goal is to connect the i.MX7 Synchronous Audio Interface (SAI) to an external master, SIMCON7100.


If the i.MX7 is slave, and the (external) master provides the bitclock (BCLK, configured as input on i.MX7), is it necessary to drive the MCLK on the i.MX7 or can it be unconnected?


If is must be driven, may it be driven with the BCLK?


This is totally unclear from the reference manual. The reference manual only discusses MCLK in the master role.


The SIMCON7100 seems to only provide a bitclock.
