clk: sunxi-ng: Add clk notifier to gate then ungate PLL clocks

In common PLL designs, changes to the dividers take effect almost
immediately, while changes to the multipliers (implemented as
dividers in the feedback loop) take a few cycles to work into
the feedback loop for the PLL to stablize.

Sometimes when the PLL clock rate is changed, the decrease in the
divider is too much for the decrease in the multiplier to catch up.
The PLL clock rate will spike, and in some cases, might lock up
completely. This is especially the case if the divider changed is
the pre-divider, which affects the reference frequency.

This patch introduces a clk notifier callback that will gate and
then ungate a clk after a rate change, effectively resetting it,
so it continues to work, despite any possible lockups. Care must
be taken to reparent any consumers to other temporary clocks during
the rate change, and that this notifier callback must be the first
to be registered.

This is intended to fix occasional lockups with cpufreq on newer
Allwinner SoCs, such as the A33 and the H3. Previously it was
thought that reparenting the cpu clock away from the PLL while
it stabilized was enough, as this worked quite well on the A31.

On the A33, hangs have been observed after cpufreq was recently
introduced. With the H3, a more thorough test [1] showed that
reparenting alone isn't enough. The system still locks up unless
the dividers are limited to 1.

A hunch was if the PLL was stuck in some unknown state, perhaps
gating then ungating it would bring it back to normal. Tests
done by Icenowy Zheng using Ondrej's test firmware shows this
to be a valid solution.
