Perhaps the clocks block should have "-clk" on the end or something.

Why do you really need to change this in the first place? You don't
have to have DT child nodes to create child (struct) devices and child
drivers.

I know regmap doesn't need it. That's not what I asked. If you have a
range of registers for the clocks, then define that in reg. Only if
the clock control bits are mixed up with other functions within the
same registers, then you can omit it.
