Subject: [PATCH] ARM: i.MX25: clk: parent per5_clk to AHB clock

commit 4b526ca5f627188425184a22ed46c91baa602d43 upstream.

The mxc-timer on the imx25 needs to be derived from the AHB clock.
If a bootloader reparents this clock to the ipg_clk_highfreq, which according
to the datasheet is a valid operation, the system can/will produce lockups/
freezes after some time [1].

This can be forced with code like
                syscall(SYS_clock_gettime, CLOCK_REALTIME, &tp);

This was already fixed with the commit
	"i.MX25 GPT clock fix: ensure correct the clock source" [2],
for 3.1-rc2, but was lost, when i.MX was converted to the common clock framework
("ARM i.MX25: implement clocks using common clock framework") [3]
