Keeping core bus clocks always running seems like a separate
independent feature to me (not related to suspend/resume). It's
mentioned in commit 523d3de41f02 ("clk: samsung: exynos5433: Add
support for runtime PM") this way:

    "Also for each CMU there is one special parent clock, which has to
be enabled all the time when any access to CMU registers is being
done."

Why do you think suspend/resume paths have to be implemented along
with it? Btw, I didn't add PM ops in clk-exynos850, as PM is not
implemented on my board yet and I can't test it.

If you are suggesting moving all stuff from exynos5433_cmu_probe()
into samsung_cmu_register_one(), it would take passing platform_device
there, and implementing all PM related operations. I guess it's not a
super easy task, as it would require converting clk-exynos7 to
platform_driver for instance, and re-testing everything on exynos5433
and exynos7 boards (which I don't have).

What do you say if I pull that code to clk-exynos850.c instead for v2?
Refactoring (merging stuff from exynos5433_cmu_probe() into
samsung_cmu_register_one() ) can be done later, when I add PM ops into
clk-exynos850.
