Yes. Missed that.

I was under the impression that when clock-names was used, the
order of clocks shouldn't matter.

Also, both clocks are optional. The controller can use a standalone
crystal instead of an external TXCO, which would not get described in
the device tree, and/or not use an LPO clock. How would one describe
a device that has an LPO clock input but not a TXCO clock input?

Last, IMHO listing them with name + description, one item per line
is more readable then having the items on one line, then having the
next line list all their respective names. If ordering and number of
items is important, I could add the requirements to the description
of "clocks and clock-names"?

Thanks
