Do we really have users like that? And even if there are, cant they use
PM clock handling support available in drivers/base/power/clock_ops.c ?

The clock enable support itself was added pretty "recently" - about 5
years back with 0bbeb3c3e84b ("of serial port driver - add
clk_get_rate() support"). So I doubt any really legacy platforms relied
on clock support being there. It was added by Murali, I assume for
Keystone devices. Keystone devices can work with runtime PM using the PM
clock support pointed to above.

Perhaps linux-arm-kernel list should be copied on this submission too,
since most users of this driver are likely to be there on that list.
