I have to NACK here, sorry guys.

Just tested this on a i.MX 7, the kernel freezes in imx_pwm_config, I
guess that is where the code accesses a register first.

The i.MX 7 DT (imx7s.dtsi) specifies the same clock for ipg and per, but
it seems that this clock is crucial for register access on i.MX 7:

clocks = <&clks IMX7D_PWM1_ROOT_CLK>,
<&clks IMX7D_PWM1_ROOT_CLK>;
clock-names = "ipg", "per";

So since the "per" clock is the same in the i.MX 7 case, imx_pwm_enable
worked...

I agree that the old code is a bit weird, especially that we get the
clock in imx_pwm_enable. It seems that all device trees specify a "ipg"
clock, so I guess we can get the clock at probe time for all variants of
this IP and just enable it on peripheral access...
