SubjectRe: [PATCH V6 1/9] clk: imx: add gatable clock divider support
Quoting A.s. Dong (2018-11-14 05:01:35)
> For dividers with zero indicating clock is disabled, instead of giving a
> warning each time like "clkx: Zero divisor and CLK_DIVIDER_ALLOW_ZERO not
> set" in exist code, we'd like to introduce enable/disable function for it.
> e.g.
> 000b - Clock disabled
> 001b - Divide by 1
> 010b - Divide by 2

> Set rate when the clk is disabled will cache the rate request and only
> when the clk is enabled will the driver actually program the hardware to
> have the requested divider value. Similarly, when the clk is disabled we'll
> write a 0 there, but when the clk is enabled we'll restore whatever rate

> So to make things work, we'll need to return the cached rate in recalc rate
> when the clk is off and read the hardware when the clk is on.
> NOTE for the default off divider, the recalc rate will still return 0 as
> there's still no proper preset rate. Enable such divider will give user
> a reminder error message.
