According to Murali's reply back in November it was still not known if
the PTCMD register was going to be concurrently accessed by sources
outside the clock framework. If this is so then neither the existing
framework-level lock (e.g. enable_lock) nor the shared clock driver lock
(e.g. spinlock in struct clk_psc) are adequate. You may need a device
driver which represents the PSC and use accessor functions to write to
those register which provide coordination.
