Maybe it's worth taking Ryan's patch for now, and when the protected-clocks
binding gets merged we can rip out the CLK_IS_CRITICAL flags and convert the
Aspeed devicetrees to use protected-clocks instead?

The only issue I see with that plan is it becomes ambiguous as to which clock
each platform considers crititical/in-need-of-protection.
