You really shouldn't expose these kinds of SoC specific oddities outside
of the API - it makes a mockery of having an API in the first place.

Can you not do:

clk_set_rate(clk, rate)



A clk_prepare() call on an already prepared clock should have no impact
other than incrementing the counter, which will be balanced on the other
side by the clk_unprepare().
