Ok. So does it mean you want everything to be converted over the
.get_parent_hw and then all problems are solved? I think I can use
Coccinelle to convert the callers to pass the index straight into
clk_hw_get_parent_by_index(). I've also stacked a patch on top of this
series to make that API accept a negative index so I can directly chain
that call after the index is figured out.

Great! This isn't as easy to script, but it looks like I'll be bombing
the list with hundreds of patches soon.

Yes that's fine to be a different series. I've reordered the patches now
so this patch comes last and I've also fixed up all callers of
clk_hw_get_parent_by_index() to handle the error case, with lots of
checks for IS_ERR_OR_NULL(). I've also made that API return an error now
and realized that this patch series needs to only do the fallback to the
'fallback' string when there isn't a direct pointer and when the DT
lookup fails with -ENOENT. We should assume that other errors mean that
something is wrong and the lookup actually failed vs. it being a DT
property that hasn't been implemented yet. Hopefully this is clearer
when I repost this series.
