There's a part of me that worries about the fact that we'll now be
doing a pm_runtime get() on _all clocks_ (even those that are used) at
bootup now. I worry that some device out there will be unhappy about
it. ...but I guess the device passed in here is already documented to
be one that the clock framework can get/put whenever it needs to
prepare the clock, so that makes me feel like it should be fine.

Anyway, no action item, just documenting my thoughts...

Oh, funny. After reading the next patch, I guess I'm even less
concerned. I guess we were already grabbing the pm_runtime state for
all clocks while printing the clock summary. While that's a debugfs
function, it's still something that many people have likely exercised
and it's likely not going to introduce random/long tail problems.

nit: It'd be nice if this documented that it acquired / held the lock.
Could be in comments, or, might as well use the syntax like this (I

If I'm reading this correctly, the strings are backward in your error
print. Right now you're printing:

clk: Failed to runtime PM get '<clk_name>' for clk '<dev_name>'

With the printout fixed and some type of documentation that
clk_pm_runtime_get_all() and clk_pm_runtime_put_all() grab/release the
