In summary, bclk = sample rate * slots * slot_width;

I will update my patch soon.

Which TDM case would be broken by this removal? The only impact
that I can see is that the ASoC core returns an ENOTSUPP for a
set_sysclk() call now, which is something that a dai-link driver
should have taken care of anyway.

A patch from those people will be always welcome.

I've already submitted a patch to ignore all ENOTSUPP.
