Any news?

Ok. Can we open code enabling these branches in the driver probe then?
Still seems wasteful if nobody uses these.

Put another way, either a driver (or other clk controller) should be
toggling these gates at runtime or we should enable them once and leave
them out of the framework. If the driver approach is taken, then the
drivers should be able to turn the clks on and off to save some power.
