Sounds right.

I'm not sure anyone cares if disable fails, which is why we have it
marked as void. The end user probably can't do anything about it, and it
isn't actually causing some sort of problem besides lost power so if you
really want to keep it please move it to dev_dbg(), or just remove it
and add it in when you're debugging.

Yes recalc_rate is still needed in this case. Thanks for pointing it
out. This is fine.

Ok.

Ok.

There isn't any example code inserted, but yes, usually clkdev is used
when a non-DT enabled platform wants to use the clk. That typically only
happens on x86 platforms because we don't have a way in ACPI to express
clk handles. If this is never used with an x86 platform then clkdev is
not needed. Either way, adding an OF provider would be good to support
DT platforms. Having a clkdev lookup would also be good to support
non-DT platforms.
