Why wouldn't we want to continue to use clkdev with the generic clock
framework?  There's nothing particularly wrong with clkdev and we need a
standard mechanism for doing this anyway.  Frankly I was very surprised
when I looked just now and realised that the generic framework doesn't
use it automatically, I might just send a patch for that...
