Much simpler to just pass a "commit" flag and not
try to come up with some generic way to represent
"hardware programming information"; in general that
will be very different between clocks.

Then clk_round_rate() passes "false" for commit,
while clk_set_rate() passes "true". And in both
cases the value returned is the rate, or negative
errno to indicate a fault.
