SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] clk: Provide OF helper to mark clocks as CRITICAL

I like the idea of having a generic property very much. Also this solves
a problem I have in a very elegant way.

I guess you need to document this in the bindings documentation, I'd
suggest Documentation/devicetree/bindings/clock/clock-bindings.txt.

Also by doing so you should clarify it's exact meaning:
The singular form of "critical-clock" hints as either having a scalar
value only or even being a flag only.
But the code actually reads as it being _a list_ of indices of the
output clocks, so wouldn't "critical-clocks" (plural) be a better name?
This goes along the line of using the plural for the other standard
clock node properties as well.

So is this the intended usage?
some_clk {
#clock-cells = <1>;
clock-output-names = "just_led", "cpu";
critical-clocks = <1>;
....

to mark the "cpu" clock as critical?
Or matching the clock-indeces property values if that is used?

Also since it is a generic property, isn't there some way of parsing it
and setting the flag automatically for each and every clock provider?
Without driver authors having to explicitly call this function you
provide? The nature of being a generic clock flag makes me think this is
worthwhile.

Cheers,
Andre.
