I thought about that since I saw the same was done for gated and divider
(I think). Here is my guess at Mike's reasoning for this:

Gated and divider clocks have to have a parent. There's nothing to gate
otherwise. But fixed rate clocks might not have a parent. It could be XO's
or PLLs running off of always on XOs not controlled by the SoC. So, it's
arguable to not have a parent. I don't have a strong opinion on this --
since Mike took the time to write it, it left it to his subjective
preference.

I sent this patch first since it was around the place I was cleaning up. I
didn't want to actually just shuffle around a bug. As I mentioned, this
patch still leaves a bug open -- what if clk_register() fails. I plan to
fix that once my two patches are picked up (hopefully).

Thanks,
Saravana
