Actually, I would use the common clock framework, allowing to chose
between the internal and an external clock source by using the "clocks"
property. This would also allow to have the correct reference count on
that 32k internal clock. It may not matter now but for example, not
doing so became a problem on at91.

As a fallback, if no clocks property is available, I would use the
internal 32k to keep DT ABI backward compatibility.
