Mostly just because clk_get() is part of clkdev.c and I didn't feel like
creating a new file, though also because I really hope that we're going
to be moving away from open coding clock framework things so that we can
start to push clock API usage into non-SoC code. Things like adding new
clocks are going to be a part of that.

To put it another way, why would a platform want to avoid clkdev?
