I have unanswered questions on the list for this thread[1]. I'm not sure
what allow/deny autoidle functions mean to clk drivers. It looks like an
OMAP specific addition to the clk_ops struct, which sounds wrong to put
it plainly. Hopefully it can be done outside of the clk framework by
having the provider driver know more things about all the frameworks
it's hooking into.
