In the first version, the "clock-frequency" property handling was not here.
Rob Herring advised me to add its support, as it could be used by
simple systems not selecting CCF.

So, I don't have the name of a system where it could be useful, but I
think Rob's request make sense.

Note that I tested using the clock-frequency property before sending.

Best regards,
