I tested this on top of my integration branch for v4.7-rc[1] along with
the ethernet driver.

First, I modified the ethernet node to use the new clock[2], and then I
added the ethernet driver to the build as modules[3] since
unloading/reloading the module is testing the clock API[3].

Then, I tested unloading/reloading the dwmac-meson module on
meson-gxbb-p200 and meson-gxbb-odroidc2 and found that the system hung
on module reload.

As you suggested off-list, this might be because it's walking up the
tree and disabling clk81, which would cause such a problem, so I added
CLK_IS_CRITICAL to clk81, and that got things working just fine.

With that change, I can now unload/reload the ethernet module (which is
prepare/enable'ing and unprepare/disable'ing the clocks.
