OK, I guess the register name was badly chosen by HW. I'd like to see
part of your description above in the patch description. How about
replacing the patch description with:

When the system suspends to LP1, the CPU clock source is switched to
CLK_M (12MHz Oscillator) during suspend/resume flow[1]. The CPU clock
source is controlled by the CCLKG_BURST_POLICY register, and hence this
register must be restored during LP1 resume.

[1] Question: where does this happen? This patch doesn't make that
change. I wonder why the suspend path can't save this register, rather
than implementing a separate suspend syscore op in the clock driver.
Does the HW auto-switch the value in the register itself?

OK, I do see something similar in tegra20/30_cpu_clock_suspend/resume.
Why can't this new code be part of the equivalent functions; does the
Tegra114 suspend/resume code in mach-tegra/ not call
tegra_cpu_car_ops.suspend/resume() in the same way it does on Tegra20/30?
