[PATCH] clk: Update docs after removal of clk-private.h

From: Daniel Thompson
Date: Mon May 11 2015 - 06:20:28 EST

Currently Documentation/clk.txt describes an obsolete techinique to
statically define struct clk objects.

This capability was removed by b09d6d991025("clk: remove clk-private.h")
and is no longer supported. The documentation describing the feature should
be removed.

See the basic clock types in drivers/clk/clk-*.c for examples.

- Part 5 - static initialization of clock data
-For platforms with many clocks (often numbering into the hundreds) it
-may be desirable to statically initialize some clock data. This
-presents a problem since the definition of struct clk should be hidden
-from everyone except for the clock core in drivers/clk/clk.c.
-To get around this problem struct clk's definition is exposed in
-include/linux/clk-private.h along with some macros for more easily
-initializing instances of the basic clock types. These clocks must
-still be initialized with the common clock framework via a call to
-clk-private.h must NEVER be included by code which implements struct
-clk_ops callbacks, nor must it be included by any logic which pokes
-around inside of struct clk at run-time. To do so is a layering
-To better enforce this policy, always follow this simple rule: any
-statically initialized clock data MUST be defined in a separate file
-from the logic that implements its ops. Basically separate the logic
-from the data and all is well.

Sometimes during development it can be useful to be able to bypass the

The common clock framework uses two global locks, the prepare lock and the
enable lock.
