I am removing the safe src for SDCC, but I am trying to get details from
teams as to why this was added, if it would be required I will add back
the safe src index again and submit the patch.

As of now, no client driver is taking care of toggling these gates at
runtime. We want these clocks to be always on and that's why marked
them as CRITICAL so that if any user tries to unprepare/disable then
it won't happen and framework generates the warning.
Once the client drivers will take care of above, then we will submit
a cleanup patch.
