This is surely a work around to the issue at hand but:

* Enabling the clock, critical or not, should not be done but the
set_rate() callback. This is not the purpose of this callback.

* Enabling the clock in such way does not walk the tree. So, if there is
ever another PSCI Fw which disable we would get into the same issue
again. IOW, This is not specific to the PLL driver so it should not have
to deal with this.

Since this clock can change out of CCF maybe it should be marked with

When CCF hits a clock with CLK_GET_RATE_NOCACHE while walking the tree,
in addition to to calling get_rate(), CCF could also call is_enabled()
if the clock has CLK_IS_CRITICAL and possibly .enable() ?

Stephen, what do you think ?
