OK. It sounds like we need a true APB MISC driver then, to abstract the
differences; the clock driver really shouldn't be touching the APB MISC
registers in all likelihood, unless a subset of the sections you mention
above are truly dedicated to clock functionality.

The pinmux controller doesn't have a reg entry for the chip ID register.
I don't understand what you mean here.
