Fair enough: I'll reorder the (remaining) patches.

I can remove apb_pclk: I was modelling the device tree entry on
various PLxxx examples (c.f. amba-pl011) which also reference an AMBA clock
but don't use it. (The effect being to document what clock the block is
driven by.)

I agree. I didn't do it like this originally because it wasn't clear
whether or not the original driver catered for some custom IP and I
wanted to ensure that I didn't break the existing driver. I'm happy to
switch both platform data and device tree to reading their parameters
from the hardware.
