A proper error path would be to release any claimed resource
on any error. If you look at the code, the only resources that
need to be released are the two clocks in question.

I guess you mean #define DEBUG in the driver?

Do you have any measurement equipment to check what is actually set?

Is this what you expect for clk0?

ditto for clk2?

This is wrong, I agree. Looks like round_rate()/recalc_rate() of msynth
or clkout is broken with respect to non-pll-master clocks.

I had a quick look at drivers/clk.c too, there has been a lot of churn
in clk API since I last booted my device using si5351.

Is there any way to try out a less recent kernel, let's say two or
three releases before 4.0?

We should just confirm that there has been an issue with it before
already.

I have no clue about the debug on/off issue at the moment.

Who said it is stable for production use? The driver is written from
scratch based on _very_ limited information of the datasheet an appnote.
Also, I only have a single setup with si5351, that is no way enough to
test every combination.

I never heard serious complaints before, so either you help improving
this driver or better ask SiLabs for a table-based driver for your
specific setup.
