comparing this to `nfi1x_pad_parents`, it looks like this maybe should
be an entry in `top_muxes`, but there seem to be some magic constants
in those that I don't understand or know what we'd use for

Again, looking at `nfi1x_pad_parents` for reference, we see
`CLK_TOP_NFI1X_PAD_SEL` used with it and being defined in the device
tree bindings in include/dt-bindings/clock/mt8516-clk.h.  I would
guess that `CLK_TOP_DDRPHYCFG_SEL` should be used in `top_muxes` with

but not the translation unit in question:

in most of the above (except clk-mt2701.c which simply has 1
additional field but otherwise matching values, and clk-mt8135.c which
has 2 different values), it's added to a similarly named and typed
`top_muxes` as:

MUX_GATE(CLK_TOP_DDRPHYCFG_SEL, "ddrphycfg_sel", ddrphycfg_parents,
  0x040, 16, 1, 23),

even then `ddrphycfg_parents` shows up in the other translation units
in the same statement as `CLK_TOP_DDRPHYCFG_SEL`.

So questions to the maintainers I have:
1. Is the above `MUX_GATE` what should be added to `top_muxes` in
2. If so, where? Is order of the array elements important.

If the answer to 1 is no, then we should take Nathan's patch.
