ALSA: usb-audio: fix incorrect clock source setting

The following scenario describes an echo test for
Samsung USBC Headset (AKG) with VID/PID (0x04e8/0xa051).

We first start a capture stream(USB IN transfer) in 96Khz/24bit/1ch mode.
In clock find source function, we get value 0x2 for clock selector
and 0x1 for clock source.

Kernel-4.14 behavior
Since clock source is valid so clock selector was not set again.
We pass through this function and start a playback stream(USB OUT transfer)
in 48Khz/32bit/2ch mode. This time we get value 0x1 for clock selector
and 0x1 for clock source. Finally clock id with this setting is 0x9.

Kernel-5.10 behavior
Clock selector was always set one more time even it is valid.
When we start a playback stream, we will get 0x2 for clock selector
and 0x1 for clock source. In this case clock id becomes 0xA.
This is an incorrect clock source setting and results in severe noises.
We see wrong data rate in USB IN transfer.
(From 288 bytes/ms becomes 144 bytes/ms) It should keep in 288 bytes/ms.

This earphone works fine on older kernel version load because
this is a newly-added behavior.
