Err, why?  The contents of struct clk has nothing to do with clk_put().
You're doing something really wrong here.

Remember, there is not going to _ever_ be the situation where a struct clk
is specific to any particular struct device - it's a 1:N mapping between
clks and devices.

So, until you sort out your misunderstanding, NAK.
