I don't think it will work that way.
clk_get with NULL argument will likely grab the first clock of the list
independent of clock-names being present.
It might be better to do something like [pseudo-code]:
pwm->pclk = clk_get( ..., "pclk");
pwm->pclk = NULL;
pwm->pwm_clk = clk_get(..., "pwm");
pwm->pwm_clk = clk_get(..., NULL);
That way, you make your way backwards through the pwm-binding-history.
Ending at the single-clock without clock-names property as the last fallback.
