From: Wei Ni <wni at nvidia.com>

The dvfs will try to init clock, it trickles down to the child clock.
Part of that init is to set cansleep flag. When setting a clock as cansleep,
in which case the entire list of clocks is traversed to set the children as
cansleep as well. in here, the clk_set_cansleep can only be called on clocks
that are the sole parent of all of their child clocks, meaning the child clock
can not be reparented onto a different, possibly non-sleeping, clock.
If the child clock has the set_parent callback, the driver warns that this case
is not proper, it will show WARNING:
"can't make child clock xxx of xxx sleepable if it's parent could change"
But Some clocks only has one parent, although they have set_parent callback.
These clocks' flags is set to 0, not MUX, it means they can not be reparented.
So we can remove this WARNING if !(flags & MUX).
