Have you seen such glitch issue in practice with the LDB clocks?

We have already taken care of it in these commits:

    clk: imx6: Fix procedure to switch the parent of LDB_DI_CLK

    Due to incorrect placement of the clock gate cell in the ldb_di[x]_clk
    tree, the glitchy parent mux of ldb_di[x]_clk can cause a glitch to
    enter the ldb_di_ipu_div divider. If the divider gets locked up, no
    ldb_di[x]_clk is generated, and the LVDS display will hang when the
    ipu_di_clk is sourced from ldb_di_clk.

    To fix the problem, both the new and current parent of the ldb_di_clk
    should be disabled before the switch. This patch ensures that correct
    steps are followed when ldb_di_clk parent is switched in the beginning
    of boot. The glitchy muxes are then registered as read-only. The clock
    parent can be selected using the assigned-clocks and
    assigned-clock-parents properties of the ccm device tree node:

            &clks {
                    assigned-clocks = <&clks IMX6QDL_CLK_LDB_DI0_SEL>,
                                      <&clks IMX6QDL_CLK_LDB_DI1_SEL>;
                    assigned-clock-parents = <&clks IMX6QDL_CLK_MMDC_CH1_AXI>,
                                             <&clks IMX6QDL_CLK_PLL5_VIDEO_DIV>;
            };

    The issue is explained in detail in EB821 ("LDB Clock Switch Procedure &
    i.MX6 Asynchronous Clock Switching Guidelines") [1].

    clk: imx6: Make the LDB_DI0 and LDB_DI1 clocks read-only

    Due to incorrect placement of the clock gate cell in the ldb_di[x]_clk
    tree, the glitchy parent mux of ldb_di[x]_clk can cause a glitch to
    enter the ldb_di_ipu_div divider. If the divider gets locked up, no
    ldb_di[x]_clk is generated, and the LVDS display will hang when the
    ipu_di_clk is sourced from ldb_di_clk.

    To fix the problem, both the new and current parent of the ldb_di_clk
    should be disabled before the switch. As this can not be guaranteed by
    the clock framework during runtime, make the ldb_di[x]_sel muxes read-only.
    A workaround to set the muxes once during boot could be added to the
    kernel or bootloader.

,but I think we should also take care of the other glitchy muxes as
you propose here.
