We have a tree structure of clks in the new common clk code, and a
list of clks in clkdev (which admittedly is meant to be a subset, but
in reality we register every OMAP clk with it), and then the omap clk
list which is only really used by omap_get_clk_by_name for hwmod and
some initialization stuff.  What I'd really like to do is get rid of
the OMAP clk code keeping track of it's clks in a separate list, which
seems quite wasteful.
