Thanks! I updated max98088 and had it working on first boot, but on
second boot it complained about the frequency:

[ 7.896834] max98088 7-0010: revision A
[ 7.912776] snow-audio sound: HiFi <-> 3830000.i2s mapping ok
[ 7.919367] max98088 7-0010: Invalid master clock frequency
[ 7.919429] snow-audio sound: ASoC: Spring-I2S-MAX98089 late_probe()
failed: -22
[ 7.920019] snow-audio sound: snd_soc_register_card failed (-22)
[ 7.920109] snow-audio: probe of sound failed with error -22

Will investigate.
