Oops, I missed somehow that it's v4l2_clk_get(), rather than
clk_get(). So it seems it will not work when you return PTR_ERR(clk),
since v4l2_clk_get() returns -ENODEV when clock is not found.
I think we should modify v4l2_clk_get() so it returns EPROBE_DEFER
rather than ENODEV on error. I anticipate v4l2_clk_get() might be
using clk_get() internally in future, and the v4l2 clk look up
will be used as a fallback only. So sensor drivers should just
do something like:

clk = v4l2_clk_get(...);
if (IS_ERR(clk))
return PTR_ERR(clk);
