It would be helpful to get an idea of what these different functions
actually do. This patch exposes a sort of poor man's ioctl/syscall
interface (which may indeed be necessary), but I would first prefer to
pool together everybody's needs and see if some new high-level APIs
should be added to clk.h.

Already a clk_reset/module reset call has been discussed in this thread.
The changelog discusses setting clock phase and Rajendra mentioned
controlling auto-gating behavior.

Do other folks have these same needs? What about other needs that are
unlisted? Please add them to the thread so we can get an idea of what
we're up against.

If I merge this patch in as-is then we'll never compare notes on what
could be common and everyone will just hide their code behind this new
clk_ext call ;-)
