Okay, there are few issues with the PMC clock implementation.

Let's consider hardware part first.

While we are using the simplified clock tree representation here, as
shown below,

.-----------. .-----------------------.
OSCIN | XTAL | | PMC Platform Clock(s) |
------->| |--------------->| Gate + MUX |
'-----------' | |
| | |
| .------------. | |
| | LPPLL | | |
'-->| |------>| |
'------------' | |
'-----------------------'

in the reality it is a bit different (still simplified variant):

.-----------. .-----------------------.
OSCIN | XTAL | | PMC Platform Clock(s) |
----------->| |--------------->| Gate + MUX |
| '-----------' | |
| | | |
| | .----------------. | |
| '--->| LPPLL | | |
'------------>| (XTAL or OSCIN)|-->| |
'----------------' | |
'-----------------------'

It does not matter so much, except the thing how we choose clock source.

(...and we are moving toward software issues with clock framework...)

If XTAL and LPPLL output frequencies are the same, there is no
possibility to be sure which one is chosen right now (the order depends
on the clock framework implementation, which is obviously fragile).

On top of this ACPI tables for some boards provide PowerResource() with
mentioned clocks, where
1) clock gating is handled when certain device is turning on or off;
2) clock muxing.

Moreover, above two are done as independent operations, meaning that we
probably need to consider even more complex scheme for OS point of view:

--------- ----------
| CLK MUX | -> | CLK Gate |
--------- ----------

The issue is occurs in the AtomISP part, where the clock is chosen based
on source index using clk_set_rate().

The problem is, CLK framework doesn't allow in current scheme to choose
parent based on index (or I missed something), the frequency based
choice will not work on CHT where both sources have same frequency.

I have a patch which makes proper decision on BayTrail, but obviously
breaks CHT case.

With regard to this patch, indeed, partially it's wrong (there is a
relationship between XTAL and LPPLL), though LPPLL part is missed for
CHT and has to be added.
