Yeah, I understand what you are doing. But the current patch is
incorrect in the sense that it can cause a bug on other platforms. To
make this work, you should rather set this genpd as parent of CPU
devices (which are doing anyway since you are updating them with CPU's
DVFS). With that the clk driver won't be required to do the magic
behind the scene.
