I don't understand why setting the PLL rate should call into the mux
set_rate. Are you sure you call clk_set_rate for the mux parent clk?
I think the general approach should work, drivers/clk/sirf/clk-common.c
does something similar in cpu_clk_set_rate(). If you like you can send
me your work in progress state privatly, I'll have a look then.

No, that won't work.
