Hi Stephen,

Thanks for the review the change.

Here intention is to know the software status of the RCG instead of
HW status and we have intentionally not defined the 'is_enabled'
ops for clk_rcg2_shared_ops. This clk_rcg2_shared_ops are only
applicable for the RCGs with shared branches across different
subsystems. Reason for using the same is mentioned below.

When RCG gets enabled by other subsystem (outside the Application
processor subsystem):
In this case when RCG gets enabled by branch clock managed by
other subsystem (outside the Application processor subsystem)
and if we check HW status of RCG in clk_rcg2_shared_set_rate()
instead of checking its software status then it will give the
status as ENABLED without overlying software knowing its status
and during source switch, update configuration will get fail as
new parent will be in disabled state.

In above scenario, clock framework will not enable the new
parent before configuration update as enable and prepare counts
are zero for RCG clock and clk_set_rate() will follow below path.

__clk_set_parent_before()-->New parent will be disabled as prepare
count = 0

So solution of this problem is as follows and same is explained in the
commit text of
1. If software status of the RCG is disabled(enable/prepare counts are
then just cache or store the rate in current_freq variable and if
software status is enabled then follow the normal update procedure.

2. Set the rate and switch to new source only in
i.e. during RCG enable sequence. This will make sure that required
parents are already in enable state before configuration update and
RCG switch will happen successfully every time.

In past, We have encountered similar RCG update configuration failure
for some display RCGs, where there are two branch clocks, one is
controlled by
application processor subsystem and another one controlled by other
So to handle such cases, we need clk_rcg2_shared_ops.
