That was the plan, but since many of the drivers are missing I didn't
want to enable it by default yet. However, it turns out the problems
I was seeing at boot from this patch were actually due to a bug in the
clock code causing the cpu clock to be disabled for clocks that have
no disable. I will drop this patch, and post a separate series after
these that fixes the bug and turns off clocks by default, with a
runtime argument like you suggested.
