Consider A20 off the chopping block- I want my Banana Pi R1 to
eventually be useful, so I added some basic clock support and we
should boot on these things again.

A10 probably won't go away unless we actually have reported problems-
it's a similar enough SoC to the A20 that all of the clocks currently
implemented should be the same between the two based on my reading of
the documentation. I don't actually have any A10-based boards, though,
so I can't volunteer to explicitly maintain/test it.
