When driver is built as module(.ko) and install at runtime after the
whole initialization stage. Clk might already be turned off before
configuring by assigned-clock-parents. For such clock design that need
to have clock enabled during re-parent, the configuration of
assigned-clock-parents might be failed. That's the problem we have now.
Do you have any suggestion for such usage of clocks? Many thanks.
