I don't see any reason for this change. Except maybe someone wanted
a nicer name to be exposed to userland. I don't see the point of
exposing what's supposed to be a kernel _internal_ API to userland
and then having an issue with those names being exported there.

To put it another way: I don't ever want to have to think about
userland issues when dealing with device clocking interfaces.
