Ok, so why can't we enable/disable the lpass sway clk in the
prepare/unprepare phase of the lpass clk driver paths? Or why can't we
forcibly enable this lpass sway clk after the reset is deasserted? Which
clk controller is the reset part of? GCC or LPASS?

It still sounds like the LPASS clk driver isn't handling dependencies it
has on accessing registers, but maybe we can get away with not handling
the dependency still if we make the reset "do the right thing" and turn
the clk back on so it stays "critical".
