Yes, this might be an interesting clk core improvement.

Ok, I've changed. To be honest, I don't think it makes much change: if
we had two instances of a gatable clock controller, then we would have
two calls to mvebu_clk_gating_setup(), which would register twice the
same syscore_ops. But we were anyway already assuming that we have
already one instance of a gatable clock controller, since the
syscore_ops operation implementation already used a global pointer to
the gatable clock controller.

Will be part of the upcoming v3.

Thanks for the review!
