Subject[PATCH 4.18 054/171] clk: meson-gxbb: set fclk_div3 as CLK_IS_CRITICAL
4.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


[ Upstream commit e2576c8bdfd462c34b8a46c0084e7c30b0851bf4 ]

On the Khadas VIM2 (GXM) and LePotato (GXL) board there are problems
with reboot; e.g. a ~60 second delay between issuing reboot and the
board power cycling (and in some OS configurations reboot will fail
and require manual power cycling).

Similar to 'commit c987ac6f1f088663b6dad39281071aeb31d450a8 ("clk:
meson-gxbb: set fclk_div2 as CLK_IS_CRITICAL")' the SCPI Cortex-M4
Co-Processor seems to depend on FCLK_DIV3 being operational.

Until commit 05f814402d6174369b3b29832cbb5eb5ed287059 ("clk:
meson: add fdiv clock gates"), this clock was modeled and left on by
the bootloader.

We don't have precise documentation about the SCPI Co-Processor and
its clock requirement so we are learning things the hard way.

Marking this clock as critical solves the problem but it should not
be viewed as final solution. Ideally, the SCPI driver should claim
these clocks. We also depends on some clock hand-off mechanism
making its way to CCF, to make sure the clock stays on between its
registration and the SCPI driver probe.
