Hm.. why is an iommu driver selecting a clk driver? They should
be using standard clk APIs so it's not like they need it for
build time correctness. Shouldn't we drop the selects instead?
Those look to have been introduced a few kernel versions ago, but
they were selecting options that didn't exist until a few days
ago when I merged the mediatek clk driver. The clk options are
user-visible, so it should be possible to select them in the
configuration phase.
