I'm just trying to reduce the diff in the patch.

Please do the magic instead of adding another API. It makes things
simpler and will work for this case without having to change anything
besides of_clk_add_provider().

If the DT doesn't have the #clock-cells property in the node being
registered then calling clk_get() will fail for any consumer devices
that point to the node with a phandle and clock specifier. I don't
expect us to get very far into development if that's the case.

Of course, we don't fail in of_clk_add_provider() if there isn't a
#clock-cells property in the node, we just happily add the node to the
provider list and carry on. I doubt anyone is failing to specify the DT
property, but maybe they are, in which case we could keep not failing
and just add the node of whatever we're called with originally if
neither the parent or the passed node have the #clock-cells property. I
wouldn't try to go any higher than one node above the current node and
look for a #clock-cells though.

If this all still seems scary then don't worry about it, I'll implement
it myself.
