Yes I think the XO (and the buffers) is the only thing that we really
seem to care about for the clk tree. Otherwise, the sole user is
interconnect code and thus handling it in the rpmh clk driver doesn't
really gain us anything. In fact, it just makes it worse because it ties
the clk tree up with things that could take a while to process on the
