In that older thread, you wrote:

In the few drivers I've written, I call clk_prepare_enable() at probe.

And since clk_prepare_enable() is the only non-devm function in probe,
I need either a remove function, or an explicit registration step.

You seem to be saying I'm using the clk API in the wrong way?

Regards.
