That is, the stuff that's not already documented in <linux/clk.h>;
that's where clk_get_parent() is documented, for example.

I'd suggest a separate (for review!) doc patch to add this to the
stuff that's at the end of Documentation/DocBook/kernel-api.tmpl
in 2.6.26 ... possibly the existing clk.h interface stuff should
become a <sect1> and the new implementation glue should become
a sibling <sect1>, that will cleanly separate the two.
