Can someone please describe why we need to do software
reparenting at a specific point in time during a frequency
switch? I must have missed out on the conversation somewhere and
looking at the commit that introduces the function, the argument
for why the API is exposed:

      To be used by clock implementations for switching to a new
      parent during rate change.

is lacking in any details about *why* we need it.
