SubjectRe: [PATCH RFC 0/2] clk: add metag specific gate/mux clocks

The general approach looks OK, but you've kind of created generic
mux-clock and gate-clock bindings in a metag-specific driver. I would
prefer to have those functions exist in the generic drivers and your
driver re-use those. I'll be posting bindings for those clocks by the
end of the week (they're on my github repo now for the curious).

Wrapping the generic clock types is an OK approach and is done by
several other drivers, so there is no problem there.
