hmm, clk_register also uses __clk_create_clk, which in turn would prevent
registering orphan-clocks at all, I'd think.
As on my platform I'm dependant on orphan clocks (the soc-level clock gets
registerted as part of the big clock controller way before the i2c-based
supplying clock), I'd rather not touch this :-) .

Instead I guess we could hook it less deep into clk_get_sys, like in the
following patch?

Subject: [PATCH] clk: prevent orphan access on non-devicetree platforms too

The orphan-check in __of_clk_get_from_provider only prevents orphan-access
on devicetree platforms. To bring non-dt platforms to the same level of
functionality let clk_get_sys (called from clk_get for non-dt platforms)
also check for orphans and return -EPROBE_DEFER in that case.
