All the drivers are in upstream for a quite long time already. We should be able
to correct them, but I haven't tried yet.

I'll try to take a look at how much effort it would take to correct the drivers
during the next few days and will send v3 with either the comment being added or
'always enabled' clocks being dropped from the patch.
