It's irrelevant with the other patches applied.

sclk (system clock) is the engine clock and mclk is the memory clock.  It
should be dynamic.  With no GPU tasks running you should see power
level avg    sclk: 30000 mclk: 15000
and both should be higher when there is GPU load.  Can you attach your dmesg
and xorg log with the patches applied?  Also are you using multiple monitors? 
If so can you try again with a single monitor?
