TBH, I don't really see what is wrong with mandating the name "ref_clk"
as the reference clock name to be provided. And for all board-files and
DTs to supply the same name.

Fine with me if you feel it simplifies implementation for you (and also
because of the distinction you want to make between the external "before
CLKMODE" clock and internal "after CLKMODE" clock). What I do care about
though is:

a) In the DT case, ability for different boards to provide different
ref_clk frequencies. We never really had this in the legacy board
file way (except some rudimentary support on DM6467T). And its fine
to continue with status quo for board files.

b) In the DT case, ability for board to specify whether it uses the
on-chip oscillator or has an external clean clock provider.

As I noted before, I am not sure if this level of naming flexibility is
needed. Every board needs to have one anyway. They might as well call it
by the same name.

That said, I wont oppose it either if you decide to have that flexibility.
