Hi Stephan,

Thanks for the review.

Yes firmware flags are using separate numberspace now. Firmware 
maintains CCF and firmware specific flags separately but earlier 
CLK_FRAC was mistakenly defined in ccf flagspace and hence handled here 
for backward compatibility. Driver takes care of not registering same 
with CCF. Let me know if I misunderstood.

Thanks,
