nope it doesn't :-) pclk_pd_pmu feeds pclk_gpio0.
Before the pinctrl patch, pclk_gpio0 was just statically on all the time, now
it gets turned off when bank0 is not in use (between reads/writes and if no
interrupts are enabled). This in turn makes the clock framework turn off
pclk_pd_pmu (and thus its other unhandled child-clocks).
