I guess there's little point in the KBC driver calling the Tegra clock
reset APIs then. Still, since the code is already there and it's not
doing any harm, I guess it's fine to leave it there; if we ever enhance
the clock driver to implement reset for those clocks via the PMC, it
will all just magically work.

OK, I'll go look at some downstream kernels for Seaboard and see if the
debounce etc. parameters all match up.

That would be extremely useful; I worry that if you tested it on
Tegra114, that means using a downstream kernel only, and also whether
there are any HW differences between SoC versions. That's quite a lot of
variables that could explain the issues I'm seeing.
