Ha! That is a good question. The issue is fixed for now by the
workaround (merged) [1].

The workaround just enables the clock for entire runtime of Exynos
5420-like device. This has some energy impact - around 1.5% in idle [2].

So actually this is question which way we want to solve it:
1. Stick with the workaround (small piece of code, energy impact when
not used).
2. Full clock enable on use (big chunk of code, no energy impact when
not used).
