Neat. I don't know if we actually want to do that though. If we always
record an event even when the hardware doesn't support the operation we
get information about events happening to the clock from a software
perspective. If that isn't important, then we can probably just put it
under the if conditions.

Right. I was thinking that no "clk*_complete" event would mean there was
some error. Detecting that case is not so easy though. It may be better
to always have the completion event so we know how long hardware
operations take and so that error handling is simpler.
