Gordon from the Raspberry Pi Foundation just asked me "what do you mean,
you can't access the clocks from the ARM?"  I'd been assured I couldn't
by another developer (who was originally going to write a Linux driver
for this), and my own testing had also indicated I couldn't, but after a
new round of hacking together some tests, I see things that look a lot
like clockman registers.

Looks like we're going to get a native driver, instead.
