I'd rather see that if all child clocks are disabled the PLL is
powered down then. It means PLLs _could_ be left running even
when power-down mode is selected because the system still thinks
that a peripheral is using them.

If you want to make it so that each low-power mode has to work
out what PLLs need to be disabled and then re-enabled makes me
want to be sick. Hiding this stuff behind specific implementations
is a recipe for disaster.
