I thought of it before and was wondering whether it's necessary to do it
as i believe it may be wrong for drivers to reply on the clk_bulk API to
do some some magic ordering to make things run because the API does not
guarantee it.

But i do agree with you that it might be a common sense to release resource
in inverse order, just harmless to do it!
So i will make it in V3 if no objection from Maintainer later.

Thanks for your suggestion!
