Please resend the two patches. In the commit text for the second patch,
describe the plan to remove CLK_IS_CRITICAL from these clks by adding an
OP-TEE device/driver to the kernel to keep these clks enabled. My
understanding is that there isn't an OP-TEE driver right now, but these
clks are used by the firmware and can't be turned off in Linux. If in
the future we want to be able to turn them on and off, we'll need to add
them to an OP-TEE device node and have that driver manage the clks.

How that will work when a system doesn't enable the OP-TEE driver I'm
not sure. We may need to develop some system whereby clks like this are
handed from the clk controller to the consumer driver when it's enabled
for further power managment, but if they're never handed off, they're
kept on forever like is done here. Anyway, please resend with a note
about why these are marked CLK_IS_CRITICAL.
