This is useful when the clock you want to be handled by the regmap is
not described in the device node that probed the driver, but one of
its subnode, or an another node entirely.

We're in the latter case, where we have two controllers in the DT, but
are driven by the same driver. We'll create two regmaps, but one will
not have the proper of_node used to retrieve the clock.
