Was not thinking of failure to boot due to clocks being disabled, but
the fact that you are not able to allocate a small amount of memory so
early in boot process. The chances of successful boot after memory
allocation failures like that are close to zero.

Okay, but with WARN() you would continue to proceed to try to boot which
is not going to be much fruitful (and might actually muddle the first
failure). But up to you on this.

Thanks,
