COMMON_CLK_DISABLED_UNUSED relies on the enable_count reference counter
to disable the clocks that were enabled by the firwmare and not by the
drivers.

the cpufreq driver does not enable the cpu clock.

so when clk_change_rate is called, the enable_count counter is not
incremented and therefore it just remains null since this was enabled by
the firmware.

I tried doing:

diff --git a/drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq-dt.c b/drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq-dt.c
index e58bfcb..5a9f83e 100644
--- a/drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq-dt.c
+++ b/drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq-dt.c
@@ -124,6 +124,10 @@ static int resources_available(void)
return ret;
}

+ ret = clk_prepare_enable(cpu_clk);
+ if (ret)
+ return ret;
+
clk_put(cpu_clk);

name = find_supply_name(cpu_dev);

and that removed the need for CLK_IGNORE_UNUSED. But I am not sure of
the system wide consequences of that change to cpufreq.

maybe Viresh can comment?
