SubjectRe: [PATCH] clk: mediatek: Export CPU mux clocks for CPU frequency control

+Cc Viresh Kumar

Viresh, this is the patch for the underlying clocks for the Mediatek
cpufreq driver.

We have clk_set_parent for changing the parent and clk_set_rate to
change the rate. Use the former for changing the parent and the latter
for changing the rate. What you are interested in is changing the
parent, so use clk_set_parent for this and not abuse a side effect
of clk_set_rate.

My suggestion is to take another approach. Implement clk_set_rate for
these muxes and in the set_rate hook:

- switch mux to intermediate PLL parent
- call clk_set_rate() for the real parent PLL
- switch mux back to real parent PLL

This way the things happening behind the scenes are completely transparent
to the cpufreq driver and you can use cpufreq-dt as is without changes.

Sascha
