Subject: [PATCH] clk: qcom: gdsc: Keep RETAIN_FF bit set if gdsc is already on

If the GDSC is enabled out of boot but doesn't have the retain ff bit
set we will get confusing results where the registers that are powered
by the GDSC lose their contents on the first power off of the GDSC but
thereafter they retain their contents. This is because gdsc_init() fails
to make sure the RETAIN_FF bit is set when it probes the GDSC the first
time and thus powering off the GDSC causes the register contents to be
reset. We do set the RETAIN_FF bit the next time we power on the GDSC,
see gdsc_enable(), so that subsequent GDSC power off's don't lose
register contents state.

Forcibly set the bit at device probe time so that the kernel's assumed
view of the GDSC is consistent with the state of the hardware. This
fixes a problem where the audio PLL doesn't work on sc7180 when the
bootloader leaves the lpass_core_hm GDSC enabled at boot (e.g. to make a
noise) but critically doesn't set the RETAIN_FF bit.
