OK, so this is how it works.

By removing the critical flag from TMU, the AHB doesn't stay always on.
With my patch the AHB is marked as critical and therefore stays on.

The sdma1_clk has as parent the ipg_root which in turn has as parent the
ahb clock. And I think what happens is some read from the sdma registers hangs
because, for whatever reason, enabling the sdma1_clk doesn't propagate to enable
the ahb clock. I might be wrong though.
