OK,  I agree.

OK, I agree.

I rechecked the clocks.It does get turned on before touching

The old DDR drivers are not going to control these clks, so we marked it
as critical.

The latest DDR drivers are already  supported activate them before
touching memory-controller-registers.

Sorry. it's my fault.

Recovry test: Regular factory tests, including restart, adb debugging,
clear data/factory Settings, and clear cache.
I'm not clear whether the test was added by chromebooks.


pmu_hclk_otg0: pmu ahb clock

Function: Clock to pmu module when hibernation and/or ADP is
enabled.Must be greater than or equal to 30 MHz.

If the SOC design does not support hibernation/ADP function, only have
hclk_otg, this clk can be switched according to the usage of otg.
If the SOC design support hibernation/ADP, has two clocks, hclk_otg and
Hclk_otg belongs to the closed part of otg logic, which can be switched
according to the use of otg.

pmu_hclk_otg0 belongs to the always on part.

As for whether pmu_hclk_otg0 can be turned off when otg is not in use,
we have not tested. IC suggest make pmu_hclk_otg0 always on.

Yes, I agree.
