After giving this second thought - I think there is limited amount of
use cases where other than own or parent nodes should be used. Actually,
the MFD node being parent is pretty much only use case I can think of
where something else but own node should be used. Hence function like
suggested devm_of_clk_add_hw_provider_w_node might invite thinking of
clever hacks... So, perhaps introducing
devm_of_clk_add_hw_provider_parent() (see idea below) would be option to
consider? I feel the bd71837 driver is not only case where MFD is being
parent which has the clock stuff in DT.

static int __devm_of_clk_add_hw_provider(struct device *dev,
struct clk_hw *(*get)(struct of_phandle_args *clkspec, void *data),
struct device_node *of_node, void *data)
struct device_node **ptr;
int ret;
ptr = devres_alloc(devm_of_clk_release_provider, sizeof(*ptr),
if (!ptr)
return -ENOMEM;

*ptr = of_node;
ret = of_clk_add_hw_provider(of_node, get, data);
if (!ret)
devres_add(dev, ptr);
return ret;

int devm_of_clk_add_hw_provider(struct device *dev,
struct clk_hw *(*get)(struct of_phandle_args *clkspec, void *data),
void *data)
return __devm_of_clk_add_hw_provider(dev, get, dev->of_node, data);

int devm_of_clk_add_hw_provider_parent(struct device *dev,
struct clk_hw *(*get)(struct of_phandle_args *clkspec, void *data),
void *data)
return __devm_of_clk_add_hw_provider(*dev, get, dev->parent->of_node,

I thik the reference counting should not be a problem when use is
limited to (MFD) parent device nodes, right?
