Are any hardware documents about such things available (in public)?

IMHO line 45 (https://github.com/anholt/linux/commit/facb4ba917a1b9f6c2ee0cea7d529acf55f584dd#diff-1b6f753c132811b3f6d70f5b31866950R45) should be like this
> onecell->clks = kzalloc(sizeof(*onecell->clks) * BCM2835_AUX_CLOCK_COUNT, GFP_KERNEL);
or you will only allocate a single struct clk*.
