I'd prefer we leave round_rate assigned in clk_divider_ops and
clk_divider_ro_ops but then also assign the determine_rate function. We
have some duplication but that's OK. Then make individual patches to
migrate each driver over to the new clk op.

We could stack a final patch on top to remove the round_rate function
from clk divider.  Unfortunately, if some driver wants to use round_rate
then it will fail in interesting ways. Probably best to live with it
until we decide to drop round_rate entirely. Patches to convert all the
round_rate code over to determine_rate would be welcome in the meantime.
