you're welcome - this is only possible because of your work on the
video decoder driver!

indeed, that's why I skipped it for now

I considered this but I didn't export them because of three reasons:
- the video decoder driver doesn't have any logic to use the glitch-free mux yet
- assigned-clock-rates or clk_set_rate will figure out the parent
setup on it's own if we ignore the glitch-free mux until the video
decoder driver supports it
- exporting CLKIDs is easier than un-exporting them
