That's not what that flag was intended to do.  It was originally intended 
for OMAP3xxx, to allow autodeps to be disabled for some clockdomains, 
while leaving them enabled for others.

If autodeps are completely unneeded, as they are for AM335x, for slower 
cores like the Cortex-A8, it seems best to avoid executing any 
superfluous code.

I've dropped those lines from the description in the local copy here.

Yes, I was thinking of doing this too.  The only aspect that gave me pause 
is that the clockdomain changes are not 100% separate from the clock tree.  
So we may have to update the clockdomain data as the clock tree changes.
