This sounds like an interface clock. It must be enabled for you touch
registers across a bus/interconnect.
For this type of clock is perfectly correct for the driver to enable it
in addition to any functional clocks (e.g. maudio clocks).
There are many instances where a driver must enable an interface clock
(iclk) and a functional clock (fclk) and this isn't an issue of the
driver knowing the clock topology, but instead knowing it's operational
Just to make life more confusing, it might also be appropriate for the
clock driver to manage turning on the interface clocks if this is
required to touching the functional clocks. In general the register
address space is used to determine which IP "owns" such behavior.
