Thanks for reviewing this Martin.
I happy that changing the implementation of the cpu clock improve the situation.
However, thinking about it, I'm not really confortable upstreaming something
that we know is not stable yet, especially when it comes to the cpu clock.

To start, and until when get a stable solution, I would prefer to put the whole
thing in read-only mode, and removing the notifier. The RW WIP is available here
on the ML, so nothing is lost.

As a second step to progress on getting this clock stable, we could try to keep
in the PLL Read-Only, but have the dividers in RW w/o a notifier : The goal
would be to determine if we need to park the clock on xtal while changing the
dividers. If we do, the notifier should probably be on SCALE_OUT_SEL instead of
SYS_PLL.

This should already allow to adjust the clock quite lot, maybe it would be an
interesting first step for a working dvfs on meson8.

Once we get this stable, we'll be able to throw the sys_pll in the mix.

Would you agree with this approach Martin ?

(It was a while ago but I think) I put this flag to avoid warning on boot
because the register value could be 0 by default, when the clock is not used.

When the clock is set by the CCF, it won't ever put 0 because zero is not part
of the divider table provided with this clock. So, as soon as a set_rate() call
reaches this clock, the zero value will go away and won't ever come back.

No problem, will do.

Sure.
