Does this convince you that you should also describe "pinctrl-$n" and
the others? If not, why not? We also usually don't describe
assigned-clock-parents. For me these are all in the same catagory:
Common properties supported for each devicetree node that represents a
device. The only difference is that on your board you make use of some
but not some others.

Sounds like a bug in the clk tree of your SoC that shouldn't affect how
the PWM is described in the device tree. After all a parent of a clock
is supposed to become enabled when the clock gets enabled.
