I'm afraid I have to NAK this series or at least the part converting the
driver back to use CLK_OF_DECLARE().

We have deliberately made this driver a platform driver, because this is
how drivers should be modeled in Linux kernel whenever possible.
CLK_OF_DECLARE() should be only considered a hack to work around late
initialization of driver model. Reverting this change without a good
reason (and you haven't provided such) is just going backwards.

Rest of this series is actually quite nice, though, as reusing Samsung
clock helpers reduces the line count significantly, so if you could
rework this to keep this driver a platform driver then we could get
something I could ack.
