No it should not.

So this is basically buggy. Look, it's quite simple. Convert _all_
your drivers to clk_prepare/clk_unprepare _before_ you start switching
your platform to use these new functions. You can do that _today_
without exception.

We must refuse to merge _any_ user which does this the old way - and
we should have been doing this since my commit was merged into mainline
to allow drivers to be converted.

And stop trying to think of ways around this inside clk_prepare/
clk_unprepare/clk_enable/clk_disable. You can't do it. Just fix _all_
the drivers. Now. Before you start implementing clk_prepare/clk_unprepare.
