[PATCH v6 2/3] clk: introduce the common clock framework

Hi Mike,

I was about to give my tested-by when I decided to test the set_rate
function. Unfortunately this is broken for several reasons. I'll try
to come up with a fixup series later the day.

You don't need a WARN_ON when you derefence clk->ops->round_rate anyway.
Also, even when the current clock does not have a set_rate function it
can still change its rate when the CLK_SET_RATE_PARENT is set.

I don't know the reason why you change the child clock before the parent
clock, but it cannot work since this clock will change its rate based on
the old parent rate and not the new one.

There are more things, as said I'll try to come up with a fixup series.
