SubjectRe: [PATCH 6/9] clk: davinci: pll: allow dev == NULL
Date
Hi David,

Quoting David Lechner (2018-05-25 11:11:47)

A lot of this stuff feels like a step backwards. E.g:

Oh no my poor devm_ helpers!

I understand that we need to support early boot drivers better, so this
patch can be merged.

However I'm curious if you're tracking Bartosz's early_platform_driver
efforts? Converting to that if it is ever merged would likely be
cleaner:

Best regards,
