We want the real clocks registered so that we can disable spuriously
enabled at late_initcall time with clk_disable_unused.

Furthermore, I'd like to not represent all of these gates in the DT
binding description (see my response to the earlier patches in this
series), since it becomes ABI (and a maintenance nightmare).
