SubjectRe: of_clk_add_(hw_)providers multipule times for one node?
+Rob in case he has any insight

If we have clk drivers that have a device driver structure and
also use CLK_OF_DECLARE then we could get into a situation where
they register two providers for the same device node. I can't
think of any other situation where this would happen though.

It used to return the last provider's error, but I accidentally
changed that behavior when adding clk_hw providers in commit
0861e5b8cf80 (clk: Add clk_hw OF clk providers, 2016-02-05).
Nobody seems to have complained though, so you're the first to
have reported this.

Right, a behavior change that shouldn't have happened. How about
this patch?
