Yeah, just don't use an imaginary dummy index for the reg. Use a real
register offset from a clock controller instance base, and a register
bit offset too if needed.

That way if you discover a new clock inbetween somewhere, you don't have
renumber any imaginary lists in the driver or device tree. So try to
follow sort of what the standard interrupts binding is doing only
describing the hardware.

Doing it right will save you tons of time later on ;)

FYI, for the TI clocks, we ended up redoing most of the clocks as
documented in Documentation/devicetree/bindings/clock/ti-clkctrl.txt.
