or alternatively we could do something similar to what the bl-switcher
cupfreq-driver does. Take a look at

drivers/cpufreq/arm_big_little.c
drivers/clk/clk-mb86s7x.c

We already have the core restart-handler code in the clock-tree, so could
maybe simply do the
platform_device_register_simple("rockchip-reboot", -1, NULL, 0);
in that common code?

Though I'm not yet sure how to get the platform-data. I guess one option would
be to do things like the 3288 suspend code does (arch/arm/mach-rockchip/pm.c
at the bottom), by having the per-soc-data in the driver and then matching
against the pmu. Because the pmu is not part of the clock controller binding
(and probably also shouldn't be).
