We should be consistent then and output PTR_ERR(clk), too.

i.e., "Failed to get clock for clocksource (%d)\n"

It's not a numeric clocksource, so for humans please use "... (%d)\n".

Agreed, but I'd suggest to check under which circumstances this can
actually fail and how other drivers handle it, given that it was not
checked before. Was this missed during original review, or is the
return value new?
