That's a rather confusing statement. The clock tree isn't even managed
by the device tree in linux-3.10-at91. Sure, there's the 12MHz system
master clock in sama5d3.dtsi, but that's about it. The rest of the clocks
are in arch/arm/mach-at91/sama5d3.c. And the part about ssc0/ssc1
hasn't been updated since it was added in 3.9. What am I missing?

You are still not saying how to get to the "Master Clock" rate (i.e. the
"Master Clock" that is mentioned in the "Serial Clock Ratio Considerations"
section. You are only implying that multiplying the ssc clock rate with 2 is
wrong for some reason.
Are you saying that the ssc clock is supposed to be this "Master Clock"?
