Lots of platforms contain clocks which if turned off would prove fatal.
The only way to recover from these catastrophic failures is to restart
the board(s).  Now, when a clock provider is registered with the
framework it is possible for a list of critical clocks to be supplied
which must be kept ungated.  Each clock mentioned in the newly
introduced 'critical-clock' property will be clk_prepare_enable()d
where the normal references will be taken.  This will prevent the
common clk framework from attempting to gate them during the normal
clk_disable_unused() and disable_clock() procedures.

Note that it will still be possible for knowledgeable drivers to turn
these clocks off using clk_{enable,disable}_critical() calls.

This is one of this problems, along with some others that this set
aims to solve.

Extending CLK_IGNORE_UNUSED is not a good idea.  In fact, if we can
phase it out completely, that will be a good thing.

Since this set Mike has submitted an alternitive solution.
