I don't think the flow-controller controls this gate. The usual way of
clockgating a core is to execute a WFI instruction. That will trigger
clockgating the core, unless the flow-controller has been programmed to do
something else. The flow-controller will ungate the clock when there is an

The clock definition seems to exist in HW yes, the corresponding resetbit
however is marked as 'reserved' in the Tegra114 documentation.
