So hardware guys tell you that you're _supposed to_ ignore the clock
ready bit for that clock and just hope it turns on and settles in time
once power comes on for the clock?  That doesn't seem ideal.  My guess
is that it's a bug in the specification that the QMP PHY hardware
designers gave you.

Stephen can feel free to override me if he disagrees since he's in
charge of the clock part of this, but IMHO we should get the
specification fixed and turn things on in the order that lets us check
the status bits.
