Sorry for I don't follow you.
A clock is orphan when it has no parent. In our case, there are many
possible parents and, at startup time, the hardware or the boot sets
the mux to point to a real parent, with an index out of the usused
Yes, the clock may be orphan, as the other clocks, but just the time
this real parent becomes visible.
So, how could such a clock stay marked as orphan?
