I have a question regarding this patch, which is mainline meanwhile [1]:

Having the following clock configuration:

|--> child clk '1' (crit)
clk source --> parent clk 'A' (crit) -->|
|--> child clk '2'


Clock '2' might be used, or not. It might be disabled or not. It doesn't
matter. Clock '1' is not allowed to be disabled. Therefore its marked as
critical.

Parent clock 'A' is marked as critical because its not allowed to be
disabled, even if the enable_count of all child clocks is 0. To avoid
that by disabling parent clock 'A' the child clock '1' is disabled, too,
whats not allowed as its marked as critical.


Now, child clock '2' is used and enabled & disabled continuously by a
(SPI) driver. What is ok. But:

Disabling child clock '2' results in the attempt to disable parent clock
'A', too, which has correct enable_count 1 (from enabling the child
'2'). What results

a) in the WARN_ON output

and

b) enable_count of 'A' never decreases to 0. Being off by one after the
WARN_ON


It sounds like both is wrong for a configuration like above.

Opinions or proposal how to fix/change this?


Best regards

Dirk
