Figured it out: zynq-7000.dtsi sets fclk-enable = <0>, i.e., all PL
clocks are disabled by default. When overriding that tiny property with
0xf it suddenly works as expected! I'll send a patch later in the day.

Are boards expected to use clocks = <&clkc 15>, ...; on individual nodes
relying on the PL? Or does enabling those clocks require actually
loading a bitstream so that it is not being done by default?

It seems ranger dangerous to me that a single MMIO write can freeze the
system - as a software developer I would've expected this to be caught
and handled as a SIGBUS.
