At least we can understand easily what is being changed. Readability,
particularly by others not familiar with the clock data, is more important
to me.

So like Saravana, I too prefer C99 structure initializers. At least there
should be a choice.

Quick quiz: in this line below:

imx_clk_divider("foo_clk", "bar_clk", CCM_BASE + 0x20, 0x5, 0x3);

which field is the bitfield shift and which is the bitfield width? :-)
