clk: Fix debugfs reparenting NULL pointer dereference

Adding clocks from a kernel module can cause a NULL pointer
dereference if the parent of a clock is added after the clock is
added. This happens because __clk_init() iterates over the list
of orphans and reparents the orphans to the clock being
registered before creating the debugfs entry for the clock.
Create the debugfs entry first before reparenting the orphans.
