I will update the commit message in new version, I describe it
in a private mail ask for how to handle this kind of clock, but not
in this patch, I will add it.

Sure, I'm always looks for a better way for these kind of clocks,
there are many other clocks like *_arbi and *_niu still on rk3288
are not handled by any module which we have to use
CLK_IGNORE_UNUSED tag when disable unused init.
