Sorry for the delay.

With the fix you sent to Jeffrey
Tested by porting the aoclk controller of Amlogic g12a SoC.
This allowed to test
* hws only table
* parent_data with a mix of hw pointers and fw_name (with different input
controllers and also an input that is optional and never provided)

While testing, I mistakenly left both parent_names and parent_data. I was
surprised that parent_data did not take precedence of parent_names.

Maybe it should ? (... but I understand we are not supposed to provide both)

Maybe there should also some kinda of check to verify if more than one option
(among hws, parent_data and parent_names) was provided and throw a warn ?

Could be useful with drivers move away from parent_names ?
