This looks wrong. There is no clk_unprepare_disable when
devm_add_action_or_reset fails.

I would expect it to work on all (Linux) platforms. Anyhow, I wonder if
there couldn't be found a better solution.

If in the end it looks like the following that would be good I think:

clk = devm_clk_get(...);
if (IS_ERR(clk))
...

ret = devm_clk_prepare_enable(clk)
if (ret)
return ret;

...

Best regards
Uwe
