Hm... what happens when of_clk_init() runs and instantiates the
clock, and then of_platform_populate() runs and creates the clock
again? The platform device probe fails because the framework
checks to make sure two clocks don't have the same name? I guess
that's going to work, but it doesn't make me feel good.
