Hi,

Patch 1 & 2 introduce a new DT flag for parsing the clock data from devicetree
instead of querying everything from firmware. The purpose of this change
is to improve boot time, it can be seen to give ~2s improvement in certain
setups. If adding a new DT flag for this is not acceptable, a kernel command
line parameter could be introduced instead, or even a new Kconfig option.
I voted for the DT flag for now as that seems to be the most versatile
solution.

Patch 3 shortens the kernel registered clock names, currently for am65x
they are of the form:

interconnect@100000:interconnect@28380000:interconnect@42040000:dmsc:clocks:11:1
0

After this patch the same clock name is cut down to:

clocks:11:10

This makes the debugfs interface much more readable in addition to some
memory savings.

-Tero

By default, the available clock info is queried from firmware, which can
be quite a lengthy operation if there is a very large amount of clocks
available. Add option for parsing the used clocks from DT instead, and
only register these which can improve the boot time of the device quite
a lot.

Currently the sci-clk driver queries clock data from the firmware, which
can be pretty slow operation in certain cases. Add an option for the
driver to probe the available clocks from DT also, in this case the
number of clocks probed from firmware gets cut down drastically. To
enable the feature, a new flag ti,scan-clocks-from-dt can be added
under the clock provider node.

Currently the full device name of the clock provider is used as the initial
part of the registered clock name. This is pretty long and completely
unnecessary info in generic case, so shorten it up. Now, we only contain
the short name of the clock provider node (pOFn.)

of_for_each_phandle can be used here. And then of_phandle_iterator_args

dtc will warn if the # of cells are wrong, so that's probably redundant.

Invert the if and save a level of indentation.

At first, I thought this was an either/or thing. Use firmware or use DT, 
but it is really only get the clocks used in the DT from firmware.

Why wouldn't you just always do that? I can think of 3 cases: 
reparenting, debug and overlays. This breaks reparenting and overlays, 
right? Debug could be handled with some userspace trigger to get all the 
clocks.

Why scan any of the clocks up front? Why not just create the clocks on 
demand? If an unknown clock id is requested, then create the clock and 
query the firmware at that point. That would avoid the DT scan too. 
Maybe there's some issues in the clk framework preventing that, but 
that's not really a DT problem.

Re-parenting this does not break, as the scan still checks every 
possible parent of a clock scanned. Overlays are broken for sure, as we 
don't know which overlays we would be applying, and what clocks would be 
in them. Debug is kind of broken as we only scan a small portion of the 
clocks.

The very initial version I did a couple of years back, did scan the 
clocks based on need, and registered them dynamically. Stephen shot down 
this based on the assessment that there might be locking issues with the 
common clock framework with this approach leading into potential 
deadlock situations.

So Rob, what is the final call on this binding? Ack/NAK? If NAK, shall I 
implement a kernel cmdline param to select the parsing method or what is 
preferred? Doing it build time with a simple Kconfig seems too limiting.

It's an interesting idea to limit the scope of clks that are registered
to only the leaf and whatever up to the root of the tree is involved in
the working set of the kernel.

Is the problem a performance problem where probing the firmware for all
the clks is costly and time intensive? So instead of doing that we're
describing some of the details in DT? Why can't we describe the clk tree
in C code with some data structure that indicates parent child linkages?
This is how every other SoC is doing this so far.

Yes this is pretty expensive, as there can be quite a large amount of 
clocks on a SoC, and each clock must be probed separately.

We can obviously do that also, however it is "neat" that we can probe 
the available clocks from the device, and don't need to hardcode 
anything kernel side... and neither maintain the clock data. If we want 
to go the hardcoded way, I can create tools to autogenerate the kernel 
side clock data from the clock dump of a running system though, and use 
the built-in clock data if it is available, retaining the existing probe 
method basically for new devices.
