Yes, the pclk_vio_grf is needed for doing video output.
andpclk_vio_grf supply for: grf_soc_con9, 20~26, grf_hdcp

 From our design folks, we have many GRF registers in different power 
and these GRF gates should be always enabled. In this case, we can avoid 
of the operations GRF registers exception problems, and it is only a 
very small
increase in  power consumption (aboult <=1ma).

I will refer the latest TRM to update a new patch for always enable 
these GRFs.

Please drop this patch.
