Each clk exports clk_rate, clk_flags, clk_enable_count &
clk_prepare_count as Read-Only. I think this is very reasonable to
have in sysfs, which maps the topology of the system with key details.
Others have requested to have knobs made available for actually
performing clk_enable/clk_disable and even clk_set_rate from
userspace. I hate this idea and won't implement it. I encourage
anyone that needs this to do it in debugfs.
Does that work-split make sense to you, or do you still not like the
idea of having topology and read-only info in sysfs?
