it's not been used in an actual devicetree file, but as far as I understand it,
the dt-binding headers themself are also part of the ABI.
And it is new in 4.2, so has not been part of an official release yet.
The reason for the removal from what I understand is that the removed clock is
not documented at all (it's source, what it does), which got it the "clk_null"
parent in the first place.
