So I can confirm that the problem is in CCF and the function
clk_hw_get_clk() which pins the clocks provider to itself.

Not that many clock providers are modules and even less are getting
removed. This is probably why this fundamental issue has not been
detected before. Thanks a lot for reporting it.

Mark, at this point I think it would be best to revert patches 1 and 5
while we work this out in CCF. The other patches are not affected.
Sorry for the mess.
