Oh, good point. I'm usually focusing on AOSP, so I've not tried
booting from the uSD slot.

As for the clk_ignore_unused, I've not seen it, but I'm usually
testing with a much larger patch stack targeting AOSP (only
occasionally trying with a smaller set to validate patches being
prepped for upstream). So if you want to file a bug, please do so

Appreciate your testing! Please do feel free to reach out/cc me if you
run into other issues.
