No, this won't work for the audio drivers; they assume the clock is
enabled when they start.

This assumption was made long ago. I know drivers are supposed to assume
that clocks are disabled when they're probed, but historically that
wasn't always the case, so if the audio drivers assumed that, and then
did clk_enable() as the first thing, they got a warning due to the
enabling an already enabled clock and/or later attempts to disable the
clocks wouldn't actually disable them. Perhaps this has changed now, but
either way, audio driver changes would be needed to support this change.

Perhaps this is due to initializing the Tegra clock driver in the
machine descriptor's init_irq function, rather than in the init_machine
function? Can this be moved?
