Thanks for the help; I updated my work on top of yours, it looks ok but
I need to run some more tests.

However I had to tweak a parameter in one of your recent changes, you
used '-1' as index in __of_clock_get() while it is not a valid value
(returning an error). As in the __of_clk_get_by_name() function you
removed index was just set to 0 at the top of the function, I think the
below fix is valid.
