I see you repeating this point a couple of times and I'm a bit confused
how you handle the clock tree/dependencies.

Does your clock driver NOT hide the details of what root clock/PLL a
branch clock is sourced from? If you do hide the details of the root/PLL
source, how do you get the branch clk_enable() to be done atomically if
the root/PLL enables are not possible in atomic context?

Is it simply a matter of your hardware having PLLs and root clocks that
can be turned on/off quickly?
