That's a strange error for the changes from my patch.
At first glance I don't see any relation to clk-composite code:
- the call trace doesn't have any references to CCF or rockchip clock drivers
- clk-rk3328.c uses drivers/clk/rockchip/clk-cpu.c to register the CPU
clock which does not use clk-composite

Chen-Yu has tested this patch (plus [0]) on RK3399 and didn't observe
any problems.
So maybe this is a RK3328 specific issue?
Anyways, I am interested in fixing this issue because reverting is
becoming more and more complex (since I think we're at eight commits
which would need to be reverted in total).

Could you please try [0] which is the second patch in the series which
finally made it upstream.
This second patch is not in 5.15 because I believed that it's only
something to make the code in clk-composite.c more future-proof. It's
not a condition that I am aware of.

I don't have any Rockchip boards myself.
So I am thankful for any help I can get.

Best regards,
