It's during my own test in AXG platform, I found clock path
a) fclk_div2 -> sd_emmc_c_clk0_sel -> sd_emmc_c_clk0_div ->
sd_emmc_c_clk0 -> sd_emmc_c_mux -> sd_emmc_c_div

b) fclk_div2 -> sd_emmc_c_mux -> sd_emmc_c_div

path a) doesn't work in EMMC driver, even both clock parent of them from
the same fclk_div2 source.

 sd_emmc_c_mux -> sd_emmc_c_div is the clock from the EMMC register base.
I believe it's ASIC design issue

sure, I'm fine with this.. we could certainly adjust it later.

I will fix this in next patch version

No, since the NAND is running at much low clock speed, and during my
tests, it works fine with various clock parent
