As a generic machine, simple or audio graph cards are not able to manage 
codec clock muxing.
If we exclude the management of muxing through codec controls,
the remaining solution is to handle it fully through clock framework.
The current patch only supports a limited range of muxing capabilities 
of the codec.
To have a full management of the muxing, I think it is necessary to add
a device tree node for each codec interface and to define an aif clock 
in these nodes.
Then parent clock assignment of these aif clocks would allow to handle 
the muxing.

Please, let me known if is this the right direction for you.
