Hi Humberto,

Please see my comments inline.

I'm not sure whether this change really improves anything.

It might seem plausible to have the registers grouped by their purpose,
however remaining drivers have them directly listed in order of their
addresses to match the order they are mentioned in documentation. For
consistency, I'd prefer only one convention to be used across all
Samsung clock drivers, so they would have to be changed as well. But
IMHO this is a material for a separate clean-up series, while this one
should be limited to functional improvements.

In fact, this driver is kind of exception as it has PLL register
definitions separated, which I probably missed in review.

Best regards,
