We have two exceptions:

static void __init omap3_zoom_legacy_init(void)
        legacy_init_wl12xx(WL12XX_REFCLOCK_26, 0, 162);

static void __init omap4_sdp_legacy_init(void)
                           WL12XX_TCXOCLOCK_26, 53);

Where do those clocks come from? If these are always fixed-rate
clocks coming from an external clock provider, using a separate
compatible string in the clock provider would seem reasonable to
me, but we can do that once we have to: none of the machines
we support use an XTAL clock input.
