That is what the _or_reset part of devm_add_action_or_reset() is for.

Yes, Dmitry tried to introduce devm_clk_prepare_enable() some 5 years ago,
but the effort stalled.

My take is that it will be easy to write another coccinelle script to convert
to devm_clk_prepare_enable() once that is available, but I didn't see the point
of waiting for that, especially since it may never happen.
