Subject: Re: [PATCH] clk: qcom: Add CLK_SET_RATE_PARENT for 8998 branch clocks

Quoting Jeffrey Hugo (2018-12-17 18:12:14)
> A branch clock is basically a clock that can be gated for power savings,
> but is also what devices/drivers consume.  Configuring a branch clock's
> rate needs to be done at the source, so for all branch clocks which have
> a defined parent, set CLK_SET_RATE_PARENT so that clk_set_rate() calls on
> branch clocks can do what is expected.  This is important as most drivers
> do not check the resulting clock rate after a successful clk_set_rate()
> call, thus the driver may get out of sync with the actual hardware state
> and weird issues might crop up.  This has been observed with issues
> getting SDHCI to reliably support "fast" cards such as SDR104.
