Actually I was about to comment and say NOT to get clocks just to get
their rate. The XO_RATE is just a multiplication factor. This HW/FW can
change in the future and make the multiplication factor to 1KHz. We also
can't really control any of the clocks going to this block from Linux
(it's all locked down). Adding clk_get significantly delays when this
driver can be probed and increases boot up time. The INIT_RATE will
always be 300 MHz independent of what source it's coming from (as in, if
GPLL0 can't give 300, the HW design will be so that we'll find a
different source).

So, I'd like to remove any clock bindings for this driver.

Thanks,
Saravana
