Ok, I see. Do you expect those 30 boards to work if COMMON_CLK_AT91
is enabled, or are there known problems with that?

If you have reason to believe it doesn't work, maybe you can expose
the selection of the clock interface to users, e.g. like

config COMMON_CLK_AT91
        bool "Use common clock infrastructure"
        depends on AT91_PMC_UNIT
	default USE_OF
        select COMMON_CLK
	  The at91 platform is migrating to use the common clk infrastructure
	  for all boards, but this has not been tested on some of the older
	  machines that do not use DT yet.
	  If you encounter problems on legacy boards, try disabling this option
	  and report the problem to linux-arm-kernel at lists.infradead.org.
