Yes, boot code stored in ROM probably mux PA14 to periph A function,
but with your definition PA 14 should be set GPIO mode when the codec
device is created.

I don't see any obvious error in your definition, could you add a trace
there [1] to see if the gpio is successfully requested ?
Could you also paste the content of /sys/kernel/debug/gpio ?

Yes, it's part of the gpio_request process:
gpio_request calls request method on at91 gpio_chip which in turn
calls pinctrl_request_gpio which then calls the gpio_request_enable
method I previously mentioned.
