Thanks for making this clear.
Any way as you can see I do call pr_err() in case of error just like most drivers around.
By "hang" do you mean calling panic()?
What if there is another clocksource in DT (even with worse rating)?
I still prefer using it then having non workable machine.

I believe that the simplification is meant for drivers that can actually use the clocksource_mmio..() accessories. Could you explain what is the advantage here, for my case, to use clocksource_mmio driver?

Thanks for your patience
