Now that I have removed of_clk_get_by_name_optional(), I see that clk_get()
deals with __of_clk_get_by_name() returning -EINVAL and -ENOENT the same
way. In both cases, clk_get_sys() will return -ENOENT... i.e. I no longer need to
modify __of_clk_get_by_name().
All I need is a simple wrapper just as you have outlined above.

I'm wondering if we actually need clk_get_optional(). For me at least, I just
want devm_clk_get_optional(). That would get rid of the arch patches.

Thanks
Phil
