Sorry, I am still a little confused, all the clock register(clk_register()) are via each different
clock types like imx_clk_gate4/imx_clk_pll14xx, if using clk_hw_register, means we need
to re-write the clock driver using different clk register method, that will make the driver
completely different from i.mx8mq/i.mx8mm, they are actually same series of SoC as i.mx8mn,
it will introduce many confusion, is my understanding correct? And is it OK to just keep what
it is and make them all aligned?
