That means it'll end up like this (so that we can have more than one
fixed-clock):

clocks {
#address-cells = <1>;
#size-cells = <0>;

clk123: clock@0 {
...
reg = <0>
}

clk456: clock@1 {
...
reg = <1>
}
}

Correct?

Incidentally, there is just one example in the kernel tree of doing this
right (in arch/arm/boot/dts/imx6qdl-tx6.dtsi). All the others that use
non-mmio clocks called `clock`, including the various tegra devicetrees,
violate the DT spec by not including a dummy reg property matching the
unit-address.
