Sorry for that and thanks for bisecting this!

My question to Stephen et. al. is: where is the correct place to solve this?
What I came up with so far (in no particular order):
1) not using clk-composite from clock drivers and letting CCF take
care of re-parenting clocks as needed (and as specified with
2) clk-composite.c: extending the logic so "rate" clocks with
.determine_rate include the existing logic which only applies to
.round_rate (which means clk-composite.c is then responsible for
finding the best possible parent clock)
3) clk-divider.c: extending the logic here to account for clk_hws with
multiple parents

For 3) I am wondering whether this would even work because it seems
that clk-composite uses multiple struct clk_hw.
Letting the divider handle multiple parents means it would need to
know about the information which is only available in mux_hw - whereas
clk-composite currently passes rate_hw (struct clk_hw for the

I am happy to work on a patch for this if I can get some help with
testing (since I don't have any board with Rockchip SoC).

Reverting this patch is fine from the Amlogic SoC point of view.
The main goal was to clean up / improve the CCF code.
Nothing (that I am aware of) is going to break in Amlogic land if we
revert this.

Best regards,
