There is hardware issue that:
The output clock the LPCG cell will not turn back on as expected,
even though a read of the IPG registers in the LPCG indicates that
the clock should be enabled.

The software workaround is to write twice to enable the LPCG clock
output.

Does this need a Fixes tag?

Not sure as it's not code logic issue but a hardware bug.
And 4.19 LTS still have not this driver support.

Looks like there is an errata for this issue, and Ranjani just sent a patch for review internally,

Back-to-back LPCG writes can be ignored by the LPCG register due to a 
HW bug. The writes need to be separated by atleast 4 cycles of the gated clock.
The workaround is implemented as follows:
1. For clocks running greater than 50MHz no delay is required as the 
delay in accessing the LPCG register is sufficient.
2. For clocks running greater than 23MHz, a read followed by the write 
will provide the sufficient delay.
3. For clocks running below 23MHz, LPCG is not used.

Need double check?

Anson.

Lets add this information in the commit message and also
enhance the comment before the double write.

Also, why can't we add a udelay after the first write and remove
the second write as having two writes for writing a value looks
very un-natural.

Having errata number in both commit log and code comment is generally
helpful.
