Yep,

Only reason to do this way is to not break existing users in the mainline.

remotely controlled BAM is already supported in upstream driver, there
are users of this who pass clk from device tree, If I make this
conditional then subsequent reads to the BAM registers for those
instances might crash the system.

This sounds wrong to control clk from linux for the dma controller which
is remotely controlled. These users should be transitioned to new
bindings once the new bindings endup in the mainline.

We already have a flag "controlled_remotely" for that in the driver.
