Ok great.

Got it.

If the parent rate can't change because CLK_SET_RATE_PARENT is missing
and the hardware doesn't allow it, then perhaps instead of having a
frequency table we should have rcg clk ops for determine_rate that
simply looks at the parent rates and finds the rate closest to what is
desired. And for the set_rate clk_op we can have it be simple and just
program a fixed divider. The benefit is less frequency tables that don't
do anything and less hard-coding of the frequency. I thought we already
had those rcg clk_ops but I couldn't find them with a quick glance.
