These clocks need to be controlled among several drivers. For example,
vdecsys clocks will be controlled by VDEC driver (not ready yet) and
MT8173 SMI driver [1]. That means these clocks need a mechanism to share
between these 2 drivers. CCF share clocks by using of reference count,
so I think it's suitable to implement these subsystem clocks.

As I know SMI driver need to access clocks among mmsys, imgsys, vdecsys,
vencsys and vencltsys. So in this patch I added clocks of these
subsystems into CCF.


Best regards,
