That seems like the bug right there. If the LPASS registers can't be
accessed unless the clks in GCC are enabled then this driver needs to
turn the clks on before reading/writing registers. Marking the clks as
ignore unused is skipping around the real problem.

For all intents and purposes could we not just mark these two as
CLK_IS_CRITICAL and then let the LPASS turn these on and off when it
cares (does it ever do so)? Or even just turn them on once in probe here
with direct register writes and then not care anymore to touch them
again? Or do we need to turn these clks on again later on when the
subsystem crashes to read/write the registers and cycle the clks back on
and off?

Ok, but please don't do anything now because we don't care yet.
