I tested MFG domain power on/off with MFG_SEL "OFF". If MFG domain use
MFG_SEL as its bus clock, it will be timeout while waiting SRAM ACK. But
in my test, MFG power domain can power on/off without MFG_SEL. That
means it doesn't need MFG_SEL while power on/off MFG domains.

That's my fault because I provided wrong information to Sascha. So in
his early version of mtk-scpsys driver, the clocks setting of power
domains are incorrect. The correct clock setting for each power domain
should be:

POWER_DOMAIN_MFG:     clk26m (no need to enable topckgen clocks)
POWER_DOMAIN_ISP:     mm_sel

No. Clocks provided by topckgen are enough for scpsys driver. Please see
my comments below.

These clocks come from topckgen. In our term, they are "top clocks".
Subsystem clocks which mentioned in my patch set are provided by
subsystems such as mmsys, vdecsys, vencsys and so on.
