Ok. I'll make a reminder to sort the Kconfig after -rc1 next time.

Eventually we will remove ->clk from struct clk_hw and then this will
break. It also clearly makes this driver a clk provider driver and not a
clk consumer.

Please no!

We have clk_hw_register_mux(). Please use it. The clk based registration
APIs are deprecated.

Yes please use a platform driver unless it doesn't work for some reason.
Even then, use a platform driver and CLK_OF_DECLARE_DRIVER() in
conjunction to register the early clks from the OF_DECLARED section and
then adopt the rest to the proper device driver later on. This way we
gain the benefits of driver core.
