Your slave node acts as a bridge then, but it seems you don't model the
bus-facing interface, which has to follow the master clock. Or do you?

Likewise the master has an 'SOC-facing' interface and a bus-facing
interface. it *could* be master on both if ASRC was supported. The point
is that the bus-facing interface is not clock slave.
