Yes. but, every block has at least 1 clock and thus the mapping is identical
down to the register level. Ie. we could do this outside the clockframework,
but then we would have the keep a list of IDs (1 per module) which the drivers
can use to call some tegra reset function which would in the end use registers
in the same memory area to cause a reset. (the registers controlling
modulereset are interleaved with those controlling the enable/disable of the
main moduleclock and bitpositions are identical)

Cheers,

Peter.
