Yes, the orphan reparenting is done when the new provider is registered.

Reparenting the orphan will be done when each clock is registered by
devm_clk_hw_register. And at this time the provider has not been
registered. After all clocks are registered by devm_clk_hw_register, the
provider will be registered by devm_of_clk_add_hw_provider.

Reparenting the orphan will fail when fw_name is added alone, the couse
is that devm_clk_hw_register is always running ahead of

That is why it will failed to get parent for the orphan clock.
