You may be referring of a different bug than I am addressing.  I can
think about the old parent, but it always a tear to my eyes since
these clocks are orphans and had no old parents (unless you count the
matron at the orphanage, but I doubt she was either prepared or
enabled).  ;)

Ah, but I see!  There are other users of this function that are not
part of "clk.c".  Doh!  Since this was a "__" function with no
documentation I assumed it was "static", but I see that it is not.  I
see two callers that are not part of the orphan code.

I'll happily move this code down so it's only called by the orphan
code and not touch the two callers of __clk_reparent(), assuming that
they don't need to deal with this scenario.

NOTE: As far as I can tell, the standard exposed API call is
clk_set_parent().  From reading comments that does move the prepared /
enabled state, but I haven't confirmed that functionality.
