We (apparently) don't have fixed policy about which devices have their clocks
enabled by default and which don't.
So, by default PL330 clock is enabled on some platforms and not on others.
This patch only makes sure the PL330 works on all platforms at boot-time.

Yes, all platforms should be enabled for PL330 driver.
