So is it correct to say that clock is mandatory for !controlled-remotely
BAM, while it's optional for controlled-remotely one. If yes, maybe we
can do something like below to make the code a bit easier to read?
bdev->bamclk = devm_clk_get_optional();
bdev->bamclk = devm_clk_get();

As the patch breaks the assumption that for controlled-remotely BAM
there is no clock to be managed, the probe code becomes buggy right
