What if a module needs two clocks and you drive the reset on both of the
clocks ? What would happen ?

Well, under a generic device-level API, you could just call an internal
clk_reset() function because you know which clocks feed into which
devices anyway. It could look something like:

on Tegra:

device_reset(dev)
-> dev_pm_domain->reset()
-> tegra_periph_reset()

on OMAP:

device_reset(dev)
-> dev_pm_domain->reset()
-> omap_hwmod_reset()


btw:

tegra_periph_reset(....)
{
tegra_periph_reset_assert(...);
udelay(2);
tegra_periph_reset_deassert(...);
}
