The knee-jerk reaction to these patches is that it shouldn't be a
consumer API (i.e. taking a struct clk) but a provider API (i.e. taking
a struct clk_hw). I haven't looked in any more detail but just know that
it's a non-starter to be a consumer based API because we don't want
random consumers out there to be telling the CCF or provider drivers
that some clk has lost state and needs to be "refreshed".
