The reason it worked before may be related with recent rework of
clk_put() itself and clk cookies instead of pointers. I lost track on
the recent clk subsystem changes here, sorry.

However, droping the clk immediately surely isn't right.
The thing is, we can remove the clk_put() just because there is no
_remove() for that driver. I remember that back in the days the driver
was mainlined, clk removal wasn't too easy.

FWIW, as soon as _remove() support will be added by someone, we'll have
to rethink passing struct clk* by platform_data or at least
double-check if we ever used [of_]clk_get() to obtain it.

Mind to send a patch removing the clk_put() on !IS_ERR and add a proper
error path instead? While of_clk_get() is the only calls that need
cleanup on error in si5351_dt_parse() we should probably move that
calls to the end of this function. Otherwise we'd also have to cleanup
on every of_parse_foo() failure.
