Looks good overall. I have a number of comments but they should
all be easy to address, and the general approach of adding this
first makes sense to me as well.

The three drivers should be merged through the respective subsystem
maintainer trees. There is one dependency with the clk header, but
we can resolve that if we merge the header along with the dts files
(actually before the dts files) so that it's possible to build the
.dtb without the clk driver being merged.
That driver in turn will not be selectable in Kconfig because it
depends on CONFIG_SOC_NUC970 (or whatever the symbol is called).
