sorry for breaking imx6 - and at the same time: thanks for reporting this!

Do you have some additional information about this crash (which clock
this relates to, file and line number, etc.)?
I am struggling to understand the cause of this NULL dereference
My patch doesn't change the clk_core_determine_round_nolock()
implementation and the new determine_rate code-path (inside that
function) doesn't seem to be more fragile in terms of NULL values
compared to the round_rate code-path.
Instead I think it's more likely that the problem is somewhere within
clk_divider_determine_rate() (or in any helper function it uses), but
that doesn't show up in the trace

I don't have any imx6 board myself and so far I am unable to reproduce
this crash on any hardware I have.
However, if it's a problem in my clk-divider.c changes then I'd like
to find the cause (ASAP) because possibly more SoCs may be broken...

Best regards,
