SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/4] clk: fixed-rate: Don't open code kstrdup()

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the patch. I've already solved this in my clk-fixes branch
(working on it now, not yet on the list). I'm going to re-use the
same approach for the fixed-rate clock as is used for the divider and
gate; the registration functions for those types store the parent_name
in the struct clk_foo and use kstrdup as your patch does below.

Thanks again,
Mike
