Missing mixing length parameterization under sea-ice

Description

Context

There is an important missing TKE parameterization under sea-ice used in CMIP6 experiments

Analysis

It has been observed that without a source of TKE other than ocean ice stress there is a severe lack of mixing under the ice so that MLD under very weak ice, reaching 1m in the melting period with ridiculously weak SSS cf. Gurvan

Recommendation

add a parameterization of mixing length scaling with sea ice thickness as it has been done in SHACONEMO

   zmxlm(:,:,1) = ( ( 1. - fr_i(:,:) ) * zraug * taum(:,:) + fr_i(:,:) * hm_i(:,:) * 2. ) * tmask(:,:,1)
