[PATCH] clk: add option to keep boot clocks on

From: Olof Johansson
Date: Fri Apr 26 2013 - 19:40:14 EST

This is primarily useful when there's a driver that doesn't claim clocks
properly, but the bootloader does. It's not expected to be used in normal
cases, but for bringup and debug it's very useful to have the option to
not gate unclaimed clocks that are still on.

Mike, this is a pretty trivial patch that I would love to see in 3.10
even though it's getting late. I'm definitely not picky about the naming
of the boot option, so feel free to change it.
