Does it make any sense what so ever to have devm_clk_enable() and
devm_clk_disable()?

Take a moment to think about where you use all of these.  The devm_*
functions are there to be used in probe functions so that cleanup
paths can be streamlined and less erroneous.  They aren't for general
use throughout the driver.

Given that, there are two operations that you may wish to do in the
probe path:

1. prepare a clock (avoiding the enable because you want to perform
   the enable elsewhere in the driver.)
2. prepare and enable a clock

So, does having devm_clk_enable() really make sense?  I don't think
it does, and I suspect they'll get very little if any use.  So, I
think best not add them until someone comes up with a good and
wide-spread use case.
