+1

And for ccf clock drivers Stephen and I plan to change the behavior of
clk_register() at some point so that it returns an error code and not a
struct clk. This will make clk_dev the only way to get at a struct clk
for users of the ccf implementation.

Of course it is still possible to clk_get from some place and pass as
platform_data, but every little bit helps.

Mike
