Does the consumer reset use the reset framework or something else? If
the driver is using the reset framework, I would expect the reset
framework to _also_ have device links and keep the clock controller,
i.e. reset provider, active while the reset is being toggled. And this
assumes the reset controller and clock controller code is all rolled up
together in a single driver that can tell itself to deny idle for
certain clks that are associated with whatever resets they affect.
