I'm glad you won't actually have any boot issues in 5.12, but the fact
you need [1] with this series doesn't make a lot of sense to me
because:

1. The FWNODE_FLAG_INITIALIZED flag will be set for the clock fwnode
in question way before any consumer devices are added.
2. Any consumer device added after (1) will stop trying to link to the
clock device.

Are you somehow adding a consumer to the clock fwnode before (1)?

Can you try this patch without your clk fix? I was trying to avoid
looping through a list, but looks like your case might somehow need
it?
