Cool. Thanks!

What is ATF doing with these flags? Hopefully ATF and the Linux kernel
aren't using the same numberspace to describe these things. For example,
I would be concerned if ATF was looking at the CLK_SET_RATE_PARENT flag
and passing that value from firmware to the kernel, blindly assuming
that the kernel wouldn't change those numbers to be something else.
Obviously that type of kernel change would be invasive but it's not an
ABI that we've ever published so we're free to do these sorts of things.
