Yes, it's still a problem, but it's bug-compatible with the legacy BSP
from TI (project arago). I've spent some time trying to figure out the
culprit at the time you were working on the clock driver, but
eventually gave up. I think it's some kind of a HW issue. The
controller would simple die after a couple transitions.
