So as I understand it the "parent" clocks aren't really parents but
are actually peer clocks.  That is if "hclk_usb_peri" is gated
"hclk_otg0" continues to run.  ...but the OTG periperhal is useless
without "hclk_usb_peri" also being enabled.

There doesn't seem to be any real downside to modeling thing as you
have done it, though it's not quite a true representation of the
world.  A slightly more true representation would be to make it so
that whenever "hclk_otg0" is enabled/disabled that it makes an
enable/disable call to "hclk_usb_peri".  I think you'd have to
subclass the gate clock and patch your stuff in the "enable" function.

I'm personally OK with things landing as you've described it (I can
see no downside), but it seems like this at least deserves a comment
(either in the code or the commit message).

If Mike T. thinks that we should use a more truthful model or if
there's some better way to express this, you should of course listen
to him and not to me.
