It is possible:
There is a couple of things to note though:

* sclk does not 'uses max divider value when enabling the clock': Since this
divider can gate, it needs to save the divider value when disabling, since the
divider value is no longer stored in the register,
On init, this cached value is  saved as it is. If the divider is initially
disabled, we have to set the cached value to something that makes sense, in case
the clock is enabled without a prior call to clk_set_rate().

So in sclk, the clock setting is not changed nor hard coded in init, and this is
a very important difference.
 
* Even if sclk zero value means gated, it is still a zero based divider, while
eMMC/Nand divider is one based. It this controller was to sclk, then something
needs to be done for this.

* Since sclk caches a value in its data, and there can multiple instance of eMMC
/NAND clock controller, some care must be taken when registering the data.

Both the generic divider and sclk could work here ... it's up to you Jianxin.
