Hm.. why is an iommu driver selecting a clk driver? They should
be using standard clk APIs so it's not like they need it for
build time correctness. Shouldn't we drop the selects instead?
Those look to have been introduced a few kernel versions ago, but
they were selecting options that didn't exist until a few days
ago when I merged the mediatek clk driver. The clk options are
user-visible, so it should be possible to select them in the
configuration phase.

Hi, Stephen,
  I'm a bit out of date of the current clock code. Mediatek IOMMU v1
driver will need smi driver to enable iommu clients. And smi driver is
also respond to enable/disable the susbsys clocks for multi-media HW.
The relationship between iommu and smi is like the graphics below[1].

              EMI (External Memory Interface)
               |
              m4u (Multimedia Memory Management Unit)
               |
           SMI Common(Smart Multimedia Interface Common)
               |
       +----------------+-------
       |                |
       |                |
   SMI larb0        SMI larb1   ... SoCs have several SMI local
arbiter(larb).
   (display)         (vdec)
       |                |
       |                |
 +-----+-----+     +----+----+
 |     |     |     |    |    |
 |     |     |...  |    |    |  ... There are different ports in each
larb.
 |     |     |     |    |    |
OVL0 RDMA0 WDMA0  MC   PP   VLD


When enable SMI driver it will need those subsys clock provider.
But those clocks providers are disabled in default. Since it's needed by
smi driver, and smi was select by MTK_IOMMU_V1, I figure it should be
select by MTK_IOMMU_V1 too.

Ok I understand all that, but I don't understand why that means
we need to have select statements for clk drivers still. If
anything, that logic would mean the SMI driver should select clk
drivers. I hope it isn't doing that.

BTW, I don't understand the mtk_smi_larb_get() API. It looks like
we expect the SMI driver to probe and succeed before the
mtk_smi_larb_get() function is called. That seems fairly brittle
in the face of probe defer or device ordering changes.

The SMI driver actually looks like a bus driver for an
interconnect as well, but drivers/memory is for memory
controllers? Odd but I can get over that.

OK, I guess the only reason of "SMI driver select clk driver" is to
avoid runtime error. Maybe this is not necessary since runtime errors
should be guaranteed by defconfig.
Your propose of just remove the select statements is good enough for
this problem, thanks.

Sharp eyes.
As a matter of fact, we are struggling on this problem for the
moment[1], I guess the recently merged device link's patch may help with
this, but I didn't have a change to try that yet.

This have been discussed long times ago, seems the current folder is
where no one object[2][3].
