Probably you should use the "device links". See [1][2] for the example.



Return EPROBE_DEFER instead of EINVAL if device_link_add() fails. And
use of_find_device_by_node() to get the DFLL's device, see [3].

Okay, then the CPUFreq driver will have to enforce DFLL freq to PLLP's
rate before switching to PLLP in order to have a proper CPU voltage.

The DFLL is re-inited after switching CCLK to DFLL parent during of the
early clocks-state restoring by CaR driver. Hence instead of having odd
hacks in the CaR driver, it is much nicer to have a proper
suspend-resume sequencing of the device drivers. In this case CPUFreq
driver is the driver that enables DFLL and switches CPU to that clock
source, which means that this driver is also should be responsible for
management of the DFLL's state during of suspend/resume process. If
CPUFreq driver disables DFLL during suspend and re-enables it during
resume, then looks like the CaR driver hacks around DFLL are not needed.
