Which driver are we talking about here? The lpass clk driver? Presumably
the lpass clk driver would request the GCC clks and turn them on in
probe and then register any lpass clks. If the lpass clk driver probes
bfeore late init, then the gcc clks will be enabled and everything
works, and if the lpass clk driver probes after late init then the clks
that can't be touched without gcc clks enabled won't be registered, and
then they won't be touched. What goes wrong?
