Ok, thanks for the clarification.

In case of AM33xx, clock architecture is,

sysclk1 -> L4_wakeup - wakeup domain modules

sysclk1 -> L4 HS - L4 HS domain modules

sysclk1 -> L4 LS - L4 LS domain modules

and so on...

Now with leaf node cleanup, we are moving upward in the clocktree, more 
close to dpll output, and is the issue related to clockdomain.

omap44xx_mailbox_hwmod doesn't have main_clk exported in the hwmod_data,
so I think I should also follow same thing, right?

The cleaned clocktree (without common-clock fw) and hwmod code is ready, I 
just need to rebase against Kevin's hwmod cpu_is_xxx cleanup series (was 
pending in last version). This shouldn't impact anything to above clocktree 
and hwmod patch.
