I suppose it's a slightly different semantic. While we have no definite
data regarding the A64, there are some possibilities:

1. The muxing mechanism isn't present on the A64, and the HDMI PHY
only takes one clock.

2. The muxing is present, but only the first parent is connected.
Switching to the second input causes it to stop working.

3. Same as above, but both parents are connected to video0-pll.
This might be indistinguishable from 1., even if checking whether
the bit modifications stick or not.

In any case, I think this deserves proper experimentation, and subsequent
documentation in the bindings of our "assumptions" (i.e. educated guess)
about what the hardware is doing.

That doesn't sound good. But it really depends on what we assume the
A64 is doing.
