No, there's a single driver that binds to that compatible.

From this entire list only the drivers/clk/at91/sama5d2.c driver binds to the
"atmel,sama5d2-pmc" compatible, the rest are just using the compatible to
map the PMC memory.

The series at [1] doesn't apply clean neither on next-20210209, nor on
driver-core-next. On top of which sha1 should I apply them?

Anyway, I think the patch at [2] is still needed, regardless of the outcome
of [1].
