I would make that

config CLK_IMX6Q
bool "Clock driver for NXP i.MX6Q"
depends on SOC_IMX6Q || COMPILE_TEST
default SOC_IMX6Q
select MXC_CLK

Changing them can be a one or two patches, that's totally
worth it IMHO.

I really don't like the 'select' in arch/arm/mach-imx/Kconfig: if
you've done the work to make the imx8 clk driver modular,
I would expect to see the same at least tried for the other
ones.

For the clk drivers that cannot yet be 'tristate' because of the
CLK_OF_DECLARE(), can you include a list of drivers
that depend on the clocks being available during early
boot?
