I meant the clock-output-names in the device node of the external 24M crystal.

Correct.

You don't need to do this part yet. Since the CCU drivers are hard-wired
(suprise) to use the global clock name "osc24M" as hosc source. The DT
references are only for show ATM, so it doesn't matter if you implement
the clocks in the RTC driver.

However we want the DT to be correct, so that when we do get around to
doing it, we won't have to update the DT again.

It's up to you though. If you want to implement basic support, that's
fine by me. However you won't be able to test it without hacking the
CCU driver.

After describing this, it seems that when we get to doing the clk parent
rework, we'll be in a bad situation if we don't get rtc changes in before
the CCU changes.

They should just be DCXO and XO, based on the diagram. The names are local
to the RTC, so they don't need to be globally unique. Whatever matches the
datasheet is best.

Is it even possible to change it?

AFAIK, osc24M-dc would link directly to the external crystal, while osc24M-m
would link to the external crystal first, then PRCM if it gets implemented.

Yeah. We'll deal with that when we get to it.


To summarize, the goal is to get the DT right the first time.
