This implies the warning is only issued on clocks that have a prepare
callback.  If we want to enforce the new API the warning here shouldn't
depend on clk->ops->prepare.  (clk_prepare and clk_unprepare need to
be changed then to adapt the prepare_count even in the absence of
clk->ops->prepare.)

Best regards
Uwe
