If clocks cannot be gated after the last task is cleared from UFS host,
then clk gating
is broken, no? Assume UFS has completed the last task in its queue, as
this change says,
ufshcd_any_tag_in_use() is preventing ufshcd_release() from invoking
gate_work().
Similarly, ufshcd_any_tag_in_use() can prevent gate_work() from doing
its real work -
disabling the clocks. Do you agree?

if (hba->clk_gating.active_reqs
|| hba->ufshcd_state != UFSHCD_STATE_OPERATIONAL
|| ufshcd_any_tag_in_use(hba) || hba->outstanding_tasks
|| hba->active_uic_cmd || hba->uic_async_done)
goto rel_lock;

Thanks,

Can Guo.
