My bad. I'll add more text in commit log or cover letter in V2 to describe
the interface.

ok. I'll change this.

Will fix in V2.

The clk_name is got from DomU device tree. In the commit log, I wrote this:
"
clks: clks {
compatible = "xen,xen-clk";
#clock-cells = <1>;
clock-output-names = "uart2_root_clk";
};
"
The clk_name is one of the entry from clock-output-names, clk_name will
be passed to Dom0, Dom0 will use the clk_name to find the clk structure using
__clk_lookup.

My original idea is to use id and clk_name to check whether the response is for the requester.
You can see in the patch:
" if ((id == comp->id) && !strncmp(name, comp->clk_name, sizeof(comp->clk_name)))"
Maybe clk_name is redundant here. I will remove it in V2.

Thanks for your comments.

Peng.
