All this silly names all over the place is getting to be utterly
rediculous. Why do we need to name clocks and look them up by name
when we have a perfectly good way (clkdev) to do this already? Yes,
it takes a struct clk pointer but that's exactly because that's what
it has to return.
Why do we want to have another idiotic string to look up a clock which
is named using an idiotic scheme to find out its pointer to only then
register that with clkdev?
I think this clk stuff has gone totally insane wrt names recently.
