RE: synchronous port : clock rate in slave mode
warp_mode only works in master output mode (again if I remember correctly).

You're right but in the datasheet page 19-347 it is said : "if warp_mode is enabled, the codec base clock is changed from 4.096MHz to 12MHz. This is only used for testing purposes".
What does it means :
1) This is only a alternate clock and the maximum rate is still 4.096MHz altough it is possible to go beyond with clock divisor < 3 ?
2) The hardware can handle frequency till 12,5 MHz but it is not guaranteed beyond 4.096 MHz ?
