    Multiple clocks is not new functionality, it's the common case for the
    bulk of the platforms, and something that is already presently handled.

    An admirable plan, but the framework needs to be able to provide at least
    the current required level of functionality in order for it to be
    adopted, too.

    The before and after changes here are not functionally equivalent. You've
    gone from an explicit multi-clock scheme to a single encapsulated one via
    pm_runtime_clock_suspend().

    Almost every single SH IP block is likewise abstracted in to a function
    and interface clock, and OMAP and others are where we modelled this
    abstraction on top of in the first place, so there are certainly users
    there too.
