All the set default routines use the inline function
"_pll_misc_chk_default" (used to be a MACRO). Inside, it compares
register values vs expected defaults and warns:

if (boot_val != default_val) {
pr_warn("boot misc%d 0x%x: expected 0x%x\n",
misc_num, boot_val, default_val);
pr_warn(" (comparison mask = 0x%x)\n", mask);
params->defaults_set = false;

so this is already done. I suppose the only other place we could add a
warning is if the first past set-defaults can't be fully run since the
clock is on, that might make things a little clearer, so I guess I'll go
ahead and add that.
