Actually initial patch is a mistake. You can't boot STM32 platform
without clock driver. This patch fixes that, and offers the possibility
to not build the clock driver of the machine which are not used
(currently all machine are selected but to reduce memory footprint you
could disable not used machine in defconfig).
