+STMicroelectronics Clock Domain
+ST hardware have a bunch of clocks which must not be turned off.
+If drivers a) fail to obtain a reference to any of these or b) give
+up a previously obtained reference during suspend, the common clk
+framework will attempt to turn them off and the hardware will
+subsequently die.  The only way to recover from this failure is to
+To avoid either of these two scenarios from catastrophically
+disabling the running system we have implemented a clock domain
+where clocks are consumed and references are taken, thus preventing
+them from being shut down by the framework.
+We use the generic clock bindings found in:
+  Documentation/devicetree/bindings/clock/clock-bindings.txt
+Required properties:
+- compatible : Must be "st,clk-domain"
+clk-domain {
+	compatible = "st,clk-domain";
+	clocks = <&clk_s_c0_flexgen CLK_EXT2F_A9>,
+		 <&clk_s_c0_flexgen CLK_COMPO_DVP>,
+		 <&clk_s_c0_flexgen CLK_MMC_1>,
+		 <&clk_s_c0_flexgen CLK_ICN_SBC>,
+		 <&clk_s_c0_flexgen CLK_ICN_LMI>,
+		 <&clk_s_c0_flexgen CLK_ICN_CPU>,
