Right. How do you control that clock? Did you model it as clock via
the common clock framework?

Right, thanks for explaining.

This sounds like a good fit for mmc pwrseq simple. There are already
similar users for it.

Have a look at: /drivers/mmc/core/pwrseq*
If the mmc host driver calls mmc_of_parse() during ->probe(), a pwrseq
instance will be hooked up to it. Once the mmc core tries to power up
the card it will make use of the attached pwrseq for the mmc host in
question.

In this way, you can control the clock and GPIO line, in more exact
ways that is needed by the WiFi chip.

Here is a DT example (look for "mmc-pwrseq-simple"):
arch/arm/boot/dts/imx6qdl-sr-som-ti.dtsi

This should do the trick for you. On the other hand, I don't mind that
you still add regulator support to the driver, along the lines of what
$subject patch does, however it may not be exactly what you need for
the WiFi case.

Kind regards
Uffe
