Hi Prashant,

I'm OK with the general concept of the composite clock, but a V2 patch
addressing all of the comments needs to be submitted first.  You might
base your patch on top of the following cleanup:

Subject: [PATCH] clk: beautify Makefile

The list of common clock types was getting a bit unmanageable.  This
patch puts only one file on each line and reorders the object files
alphabetically.  Also a newline is added to separate the sections.
