Practically, clock driver is always needed during the whole system running.
It must be probed and never be removed. Is it a must for clock driver being
a platform driver? If it's not, I'd prefer to use CLK_OF_DECLARE instead.
Could you help me to understand the advantage of platform driver here? If
it's really a must, I will continue to fix these bugs as you pointed. It indeed
needs to be changed a lot including drivers/clk/hisilicon/clk.c.

Thank you!

Regards,
Jiancheng
