Hm, this is not like I'm asking something impossible here (see the
following patch).

Subject: [PATCH v4] pwm: imx: remove ipg clock and enable per clock when required

The use of the ipg clock was introduced with commit 7b27c160c681
("pwm: i.MX: fix clock lookup").
In the commit message it was claimed that the ipg clock is enabled for
register accesses. This is true for the ->config() callback, but not
for the ->set_enable() callback. Given that the ipg clock is not
consistently enabled for all register accesses we can assume that either
it is not required at all or that the current code does not work.
Remove the ipg clock code for now so that it's no longer in the way of
refactoring the driver.

In the other hand, the imx7 IP requires the peripheral clock to be
enabled before accessing its registers. Since ->config() can be called
when the PWM is disabled (in which case, the peripheral clock is also
disabled), we need to surround the imx->config() with
clk_prepare_enable(per_clk)/clk_disable_unprepare(per_clk) calls.

Note that the imx7 IP was working fine so far because the ipg clock was
actually pointing to the peripheral clock, which guaranteed peripheral
clock activation even when ->config() was called when the PWM was
disabled.

Patch seems OK, so I will test it latter today including rework of
patch 7 (do not recalculate things when enabling PWM and the peripheral
clock availability.

Thanks Boris for preparing the patch.
