The point is that we really don't care about which PLL is actually
being used, as long as the rate is correct and we don't break anything
else. If the GPU rate is accessible through one of the other PLL, it
makes even more sense to not use the GPU PLL and keep it disabled,
since it will result in some power savings.

You can add it to the DTSI without a board using it (and actually,
nothing should be in the board DTS, everything in the DT for the Mali
applies to all boards).
