No, I think that is  mistake. It will mean that other drivers with the same
bug as the imx-clk driver will appear to build fine, but not work correctly.

A build error is better than silently dropping the command line parsing in
my opinion.

Why not move this all to a separate file then and only build it when
CONFIG_CLK_IMX=y?
It seems that you don't need the imx_keep_uart_clocks_param() if the
clk driver is
loaded as a module, but then you also don't need the imx_clk_disable_uart()
and imx_register_uart_clocks() functions or the associated variables.
