Things might change in the context of work being done here by Bartosz
for converting clocks to early platform devices.

But, keeping that development aside for a moment: I think this means the
PLLs and PSCs need to be CLK_OF_DECLARE(). What we can have as platform
devices are clocks that are not in the path to get timer clock working
(like CFGCHIP clocks).
