no, I haven't been able to validate this (yet)

there at least three other (potential) consumers of the ddr_pll clocks
on the 32-bit SoCs:
- CPU clock mux [0]
- clk81 mux [1]
- USB PHY [2]

I have not validated any of these either

sure - so far Kevin has been doing a great job of still tracking these
but I'm happy to split this into two patchsets
