I read the code and it makes sense.
I try ro add mmc_clkc_regmap_divider_ops in clk-regmap.c and implement 
the initial value when enable call. like this:
+static int mmc_clkc_regmap_div_enable(struct clk_hw *hw)
+{
+       struct clk_regmap *clk = to_clk_regmap(hw);
+       struct clk_regmap_div_data *div = clk_get_regmap_div_data(clk);
+       unsigned int val;
+
+       regmap_read(clk->map, div->offset, &val);
+       val &= clk_div_mask(div->width);
+       if (!val)
+               regmap_update_bits(clk->map, div->offset,
+                                  clk_div_mask(div->width) << div->shift,
+                                  clk_div_mask(div->width));

+       return 0;
+}

it works.

en , we need set 0 for emmc as well.

indeed, i will adopt the recommended value.
