Ok, that makes sense. Linux will not enable these clocks if a driver
is loaded for them though, so we should load a driver for them.

ESPI: We do not have an upstream driver for eSPI, but once you submit
one this will solve the eSPI issue.

LPC: The existing LPC driver will enable the clock, so by loading that
this clock will be left enabled.

UART1/UART2: This is harder, as the SUART mode means the BMC does not
load a driver for these devices. We could add a property to the device
tree to describe the clocks that must be left on?

Cheers,

Joel
