The driver name is whatever you put into the driver file. The AUXDATA
only affects the device name. There should be no conflict with the
"sflash" driver, since that clock is set up to expect driver name "spi"
which doesn't conflict with "spi_tegra.*".

So, there's really no point in churning the clock names any more,
especially since it's temporary. If you feel strongly about this, the
best thing to do is help push Tegra's support of DT clock bindings forward.
