You are right that there are no guidelines stating, "don't do that", but
please, "don't do that" ;-)

clk_enable and clk_set_rate are entirely unrelated operations from the
perspective of the Linux clock framework, and mixing these two classes
of operations is a recipe for pain.

So what happens here if this is gateable clock and later on we call
clk_enable on it? The clocks rate will still be zero since
clk_enable/clk_disable do not touch the rate at all.
