Thanks for your work on this. I like that we get closer to a shared code base.

Do you have any plans to add support for multiple clocks per struct
device? I had some plans to play around with that myself, but if we're
moving the code to a common place then this obviously becomes a bit
more complicated.

It's rather common that each hardware block in an SoC is connected to
more than a single clock. This needs to be managed by software

So if the plan is to make to the code generic, how about allowing the
architecture to associate clocks with each struct device somehow?
