Here too please describe why the clock names are not generic.

Tero originally had this patch in the kernel so this is somewhat of a
revert. Since these "clock" were removed. If the name syntax is no longer
valid for some reason, then I will need a little more informations to

Tero, can you assist here?

This one is just following the naming convention of the rest of the clocks atm.

If we need to fix all the underscore name clocks, that requires pretty much complete revamp of both the dts data + clock data under the clock driver, and it is not backwards compatible either. How should we tackle that one?

We could maybe add support code in kernel to do s/-/_/g for the "new" clocks so that their parent-child relationships would be retained, and then convert the clocks in phases.
