Basically I wondered if there are some cases needed to check more
conditions other than
clock rate (e.g. parent clock's internal properties).

In my case, now I'm trying to make a wrapper clock on a mux clock which has
a rate adjustable PLL clock and a fixed temporary clock as its parents.

clkPLL clkTMP
\ /
clkMUX

Current device driver is using three different clocks specified from
the device tree
and the driver handles clocks like this way to change operating clock speed.

clk_set_parent(clkMUX, clkTMP);
clk_set_rate(clkPLL, HZ);
udelay(10);
clk_set_parent(clkMUX, clkPLL);

Now what I want to do is to supply only one clock to a device node,
make the driver
call clk_set_rate() only, and clkMUX 's notification handler does
set_parent() things instead.
So it's good to know that clkMUX's rate changing is not caused by
clk_set_parent() and
deny its rate changing when an inappropriate parent is set.

Sorry for the long story for a simple reason, and maybe there could be
a more plausible reason
for this in near future?

Oops, thanks!

Yes, you're right, this was simply wrong..

Agree,
Thank you for the review.
