can you CC me also, I have almost missed this...

v4.16 works just fine on beagle-xm (including audio), omap2plus_defconfig.

Hrm, the order looks a bit weird, it should be
TWL4030: HFCLK is not configured
twl4030-audio 48070000.i2c:twl@48:audio: Invalid audio_mclk
twl4030-audio: probe of 48070000.i2c:twl@48:audio failed with error -22

In twl4030_audio_probe() we try to get the HFCLK rate via
twl_get_hfclk_rate(), which is reading it with:
twl_i2c_read_u8(TWL_MODULE_PM_MASTER, &ctrl, R_CFG_BOOT);

The CFG_BOOT register of twl4030 is not configured correctly for some
The TRM of twl4030 states that the SW should program the HFCLK_FREQ
during boot sequence.

If it is not done, MDAC and USB should not work either. And all sorts of
other issues might happen.

So the boot loader is not configuring the HFCLK_FREQ, for me it does as
I have this line in the kernel log:
[    1.472503] Skipping twl internal clock init and using bootloader
value (unknown osc rate)

In DT the twl should have the fck clock to not depend on the bootloader
for the HFCLK_FREQ settings. We do not have that for beagle-xm for sure.
