Not at all, but then this patch (moving apcs context to a shared header
file) shouldn't be needed, or am I missing something?

Keeping the clock driver in the clock subsystem does make sense. I see
now that there is a include of a local header file as well, so that
would just be messy to keep split.

I'm fine with the extra driver instance, it's the DT that I don't think
should describe the fact that we want to keep the clock-part in the
clock subsystem.

Do you see any problems spawning the clock driver programmatically and
then calling of_clk_add_hw_provider() on the parent's of_node?

Regards,
Bjorn
