Hi Martin

 I'm having problem with this series applied.
I've tested on the A113D (AXG) platform, if this patch is applied, the
driver will choose MPLL2 as clk source, and seems it doesn't work out
with this clk (fail to get IP)

grep mpll2 /sys/kernel/debug/clk/clk_summary
       mpll2                              1            1   249999449
     0 0
