> Video engine uses eclk and vclk for its clock sources and its reset
> control is coupled with eclk so the current clock enabling sequence works
> like below.
>  Enable eclk
>  De-assert Video Engine reset
>  10ms delay
>  Enable vclk
> It introduces improper reset on the Video Engine hardware and eventually
> the hardware generates unexpected DMA memory transfers that can corrupt
> memory region in random and sporadic patterns. This issue is observed
> very rarely on some specific AST2500 SoCs but it causes a critical
> kernel panic with making a various shape of signature so it's extremely
> hard to debug. Moreover, the issue is observed even when the video
> engine is not actively used because udevd turns on the video engine
> hardware for a short time to make a query in every boot.
> To fix this issue, this commit changes the clock handling logic to make
> the reset de-assertion triggered after enabling both eclk and vclk. Also,
> it adds clk_unprepare call for a case when probe fails.

> clk: ast2600: fix reset settings for eclk and vclk
> Video engine reset setting should be coupled with eclk to match it
> with the setting for previous Aspeed SoCs which is defined in
> clk-aspeed.c since all Aspeed SoCs are sharing a single video engine
> driver. Also, reset bit 6 is defined as 'Video Engine' reset in
> datasheet so it should be de-asserted when eclk is enabled. This
> commit fixes the setting.
