As foreseen by Andrew, this caused a regression. On the Romulus
machine the device tree contains a gpio hog for GPIO S7. With the
patch applied:

[    0.384796] aspeed-g5-pinctrl 1e6e2080.pinctrl: request pin 151
(AA20) for 1e780000.gpio:943
[    0.385009] Muxing pin 151 for GPIO
[    0.385081] Disabling signal VPOB9 for VPO
[    0.402291] aspeed-g5-pinctrl 1e6e2080.pinctrl: Failed to acquire
regmap for IP block 1
[    0.402521] aspeed-g5-pinctrl 1e6e2080.pinctrl: request() failed for pin 151

The code path is aspeed-gpio -> pinmux-g5 -> regmap -> clk, and the
of_clock code returns an error as it doesn't have a valid struct
clk_hw pointer. The regmap call happens because pinmux wants to check
the GFX node (IP block 1) to query bits there.

For reference, reverting the patch gives us this trace:

[    0.393160] Muxing pin 151 for GPIO
[    0.393267] Disabling signal VPOB9 for VPO

This can be reproduced in qemu without userspace:

qemu-system-arm -M romulus-bmc -nographic -kernel arch/arm/boot/zImage
-dtb arch/arm/boot/dts/aspeed-bmc-opp-romulus.dtb -no-reboot

Billy, do you have any suggestions?
