Well you just said it, if the binding is not just for linux, it's probably
a good idea to mention it somewhere since I can promise you it's *not*
documented in the hardware manual. Whatever this binding is for, it's
relevant to point out it is different from the other clock drivers in the
same directory... ?

No, the block is called 'sysctrl' and has tons of other stuff in there.
I've tried multiple times to get a 'sysctrl' driver in the previous
versions of the patch, in various shape or form, and I can't because I'd be
supposed to 'document' binding for stuff that has no code, no purpose, no
testing, and have all wildly different topics. So, after some more
lengthily discussion with Geert, we've decided to make the 'primary'
feature of that block (clocks) as a driver, and see from there onward.

Thanks for all the other comments, all taken onboard for next version!
