The number of clocks depends on how it's wired for the SoC.

On omaps, there's are no controls for additinoal SGX clocks. Sure some
of the clocks may be routed to multple places internally by the wrapper
module. But we have no control over that.

If we wanted to specify just the "fck" clock on omaps, then we can
do it with something like this:

  - if:
	  - "ti,omap4-sgx544-112"
	  - "ti,omap5-sgx544-116"
	  - "ti,dra7-sgx544-116"
	  minItems: 1
	  maxItems: 1

	  const: fck

      - clocks
      - clock-names

There's no need for the SGX driver to toggle the "fck" here, it's
all done by PM runtime alreaedy so we would be just tweaking
the usage count for it. But hey, showing the clock rate might
be nice. Or maybe we want to at some point scale it, so no problem
specifying it.

For omap3, we should then specify "fck" and "ick". On omap4 and
later, there's no separate control over the "ick".

Then for the other SoCs, you can specify whatever clocks you need
