It gets better. What about also describing shortly the purpose of this
clock (assuming this is the source clock of the PWM that is then
divided):

All hardware variants need a source clock that is divided and
then feeds the counter that defines the output wave form. In the
device tree this clock is either unnamed or called "mod".
Some variants (e.g. H6) need another clock to access the
hardware registers; this is called "bus".

So we request "mod" first (and ignore the corner case that a
parent provides a "mod" clock while the right one would be the
unnamed one of the PWM device) and if this is not found we fall
back to the first clock of the PWM.

Best regards
Uwe
