It's simpler because it's not complete. It for sure doesn't handle
orphan-reparenting. It also doesn't make a lot of sense for only some
clock providers registering for sync_state(). If CC-A is feeding a
clock signal that's used as a root for clocks in CC-B, then what
happens if only CC-B implements sync_state() but CC-A doesn't. The
clocks from CC-B are still going to turn off when CC-A turns off its
PLL before CC-B registers.

Nack for this patch.

Also, unless there's a strong objection, let's go back to my patch
please. It's way more well tested and used across different SoCs than
this patch. Also, I'm pretty sure the orphan handling is needed for
qcom SoC's too.
