Where are these flags defined? I don't see it in any of the patches in
the series. Is my search foo not up to par today?

I think what Ben is saying is that you provider a way (using function or
data/table pointers in clk_divider) that will allow the clk provider to
define a "divider" to "register value" mapping. Say you decide to do
that using a function pointer, then you would implement the following in
clk-divider.c.

div_to_reg_one_based
div_to_reg_pow_two

The actual clock-provider code will pick one of these or implement their
own mapping function. That way, clk-divider won't have to change for any
other convoluted variants of clk divider to register value mapping.
