Well, good suggestions to me.
It makes the implementation of this clock type more comprehensive.

It seems we still need keep CLK_DIVIDER_ZERO_GATE to distinguish with others.

The change for recacle_rate may looks like:
0 rate as there's still no set_rate happened.

If any issue, please let me know.
