What about this variant:

1. Keep the old CaR code in place.

2. Make CaR driver to scan whole device-tree for the legacy PMC clocks.

3. If legacy clock is found, then register PMC clocks from CaR.

4. If legacy clocks are not found, then don't register PMC clocks from

5. Add clocks support to the PMC driver and only register them if
legacy clocks are not registered by CaR.

Now both old and new DTBs can co-exist and work, everyone happy.
