Pi-Cheng is using the consumer portion of the clock binding, and he is
using it correctly. You can see this type of thing sprinkled all over.
For instance, many I/O controller do this exact same thing.

The clock driver is the "provider" and it is separate. This binding is

binding is absolutely correct.
Take a quick look at clock-bindings.txt and search for the section
titled, "==Clock consumers==" for more info.
