Hi Mike, Stephen,

Gentle ping.
This patch has been waiting for while now.
As far as I know, the only blocking point to merging this patch is the qcom mmc
driver. The clocks used in this driver rely on the broken implementation of
CLK_SET_RATE_GATE, effectively ignoring the flag.

Since the flag is ignored, removing it from this particular clock won't make any
difference. Can we just do that until a better fix is available for this qcom
mmc clock ?

--- A bit of history ----

I managed to have a run on kci - based on v4.12-rc6:
https://kernelci.org/boot/all/job/khilman/branch/to-build/kernel/v4.12-rc6-10-ge
a373ddef830/

There was no build regression but kci did find one boot regression on qcom
platforms:
* qcom-apq8064-cm-qs600
* qcom-apq8064-ifc6410

it seems the problem is coming from the clock used by the mmc driver
(drivers/mmc/host/mmci.c)

the driver does following sequence:
* get_clk
* prepare_enable
* get_rate
* set_rate
* ...

with clock SDCx_clk (qcom_apq8064.dtsi:1037). This clock has CLK_SET_RATE_PARENT
flag so it will transmit the request to its parent.
The parent of this clock is SDCx_src which has the CLK_SET_RATE_GATE flag.

So obviously, is CLK_SET_RATE_GATE was enforced, the sequence used by mmci
driver would never had worked.

This particular driver rely on the fact that the clock can while the clock is
on. Either it actually works and we can remove CLK_SET_RATE_GATE until a better
solution comes.
OR, it does not work which means nobody has been using this driver for a long
time.
