Since our clock is root then returned value will always be valid.
I am far from being expert here, but no one checks for clk_get_rate() return value for error.
Could you refer to a single place at clocksource drivers that checks for error in the return value.

>> + ret = clocksource_register_hz(clksrc, nps_timer_rate);

>You can simplify the driver even more by using clocksource_mmio_init.
Since my base address depends on cluster number, which CPU is part of, this interface is not much of a use. On top of that it assumes that I am little endian by using readl family accessories.
