Where/what is the code that will call these new APIs? If it's going to
be something in drivers/clk, that seems fine. If not, then this seems to
be inventing a bunch of new custom APIs exported by the clock driver.
I'm not sure if that's a good idea. (Although I guess that
include/linux/clk/tegra.h has a bunch of other custom APIs to support
CPU hotplug and related functionality, so perhaps it's not a big deael).

The reset assert/de-assert functions at least might be worth exposing
using the new generic module reset API. I believe Prashant Gaikwad is
working on converting the Tegra clock driver to be a module reset
provider, hence removing the existing custom
tegra_periph_reset_{de,}assert() APIs.
