Thanks for that. We shouldn't be touching the hardware during clk
registration though, so something is wrong there. It seems that
adding the flag to enable clks when touching their registers has
exposed that we should just be doing the toggle of the bookeeping
stuff underneath the enable lock here.

We know that the clk isn't enabled with any sort of prepare_count
here so we don't need to enable anything to prevent a race. And
we're holding the prepare mutex so set_rate/set_parent can't race
here either.

Can you try this patch instead?
