At one point I had something similar to that where the output names
were generated at probe.
Without the clock outputs listed in the device tree clock muxes that
source clocks from the mpll couldn't probe properly as they couldn't
look up all of their parents if they probed before the mpll.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong there? I couldn't find a way to always
resolve all of the parents or defer the probe of the muxes until the
mpll clocks are registered.
