Is it ok for EMMC rate to change with over-temp/under-voltage?
The description makes it sound like PLLC is for clks that want to
run at some system bus rate and they don't care about exact

This strcmp is not great. Any chance we could look for the parent
by reading the hardware and knowing what bit corresponds to pllc
as a parent? That would be much nicer so that we don't rely on
string comparisons for something the hardware can tell us.
