Hi Mark,

I've taken this into my new clk-next branch which is now based on top of
v3.5-rc2.  I'll send a request to Stephen Rothwell in the coming days so
that clk-next starts getting tested.

Just so we're clear, it is likely that in the current state of things
your clk_prepare calls could deadlock on a production system.  This is a
shortcoming I'm trying to address in the framework, and I don't see it
as a reason to prevent merging your patch, but I didn't want you to be
surprised if you tested this code on a platform ported to common clk.
