We've been working on an i.MX8MP where MCLK needs to be input and found
that this enables the MCLK as output despite not having set the
`fsl,sai-mclk-direction-output;` devicetree property in our DT.
Reverting the patch fixes the issues for us.

I have to say that the code comment made me a bit confused, but once
I found the commit message I understood why this code existed.
If this is really i.MX8MM specific maybe mention that in the code
comment and please make the code actually only trigger on i.MX8MM.
It seems to me like these all fulfill the current criteria:
imx7ulp, imx8mq, imx8mm, imx8mp, imx8ulp, imx93

Should I report this in bugzilla.kernel.org ?
