Below is an example showing PLL and Leaf clock derivation:

Input ref clocks->Mux->Multiplier/Divider->PLL*
Pll1/pll2/pll3/pll4->Mux->Divider->Gate->Leaf clock1

Here Off chip input ref clock information comes from DT.
Rest information for Pll/leaf clocks come from firmware using query API. For clock driver, query API is used to get topology, flags, parents etc information per clock.

Thanks,
Jolly Shah
