In my case, for most clocks, set rate involves reparenting. So, what does
passing parent_rate for these even mean? Passing parent_rate seems more
apt for recalc_rate since it's called when the parent rate changes -- so,
the actual parent itself is not expected to change.

I could ignore the parameter, but just wondering how many of the others
see value in this. And if we do add this parameter, it shouldn't be made
mandatory for the platform driver to use it (due to other assumptions the
clock framework might make).
