Your clock changes look correct, but there is also a CLKGEN register
block which has separate clocks for the GENET controller, which lives at
register offset 0x7d5e0048 and which has the following layout:

bit 0: GENET_CLK_250_CLOCK_ENABLE
bit 1: GENET_EEE_CLOCK_ENABLE
bit 2: GENET_GISB_CLOCK_ENABLE
bit 3: GENET_GMII_CLOCK_ENABLE
bit 4: GENET_HFB_CLOCK_ENABLE
bit 5: GENET_L2_INTR_CLOCK_ENABLE
bit 6: GENET_SCB_CLOCK_ENABLE
bit 7: GENET_UNIMAC_SYS_RX_CLOCK_ENABLE
bit 8: GENET_UNIMAC_SYS_TX_CLOCK_ENABLE

you will need all of those clocks turned on for normal operation minus
EEE, unless EEE is desirable which is why it is a separate clock. Those
clocks default to ON unless turned off, and the main gate that you
control is probably enough.

The Pi4 could support Wake-on-LAN with appropriate VPU firmware changes,
but I do not believe there is any interest in doing that. I would not
"bend" the clock representation just so as to please the driver with its
clocking needs.
