Well, on conversation [1], it seems people agreed that for those huge
clock tree, only leaf clocks should be exposed in device tree. Then
please help me understand how we could do that with the current binding
design, considering those leaf clocks are consumers of their parent
clocks while being provider to the leaf clock the parent clock is not
exposed in device tree.
