This is the last clk_disable() that could cause NULL pointer access.
This is blocking clk consumer cleanup works.

I poked the Blackfin maintainer several times, but no response.
Actually, the maintainer has not been picking up any patches for a long time.

Please pick up this patch through your tree.
