    From what I heard from Mike[1], Omap will not have most of the clocks
    encoded in device tree.

    Although my original preference was to have all the clocks represented
    in device tree and dynamically registered to clk framework, I've heard
    people including Grant incline to only have oscillator and leaf modules
    clocks in device tree. I somehow agree with that now, because having
    all the clocks in there will bloat device tree dramatically, considering
    there will be 3 clks, clk_gate, clk_divider and clk_mux backing one
    clock in general.

    Assuming we would agree to have most SoC internal clocks registered
    from clock driver rather than device tree, I would like to hear about
    how we should have these clock registered from clock driver, static
    initialization or using register function?
