OK. I realise we do have some support for the common clock API, but only
on certain sub-platforms (PPC_MPC512x, PPC_MPC52xx, PPC_E500MC).

On other platforms we have nothing at all AFAICS.

Seems Ben posted an RFC to support it in 2009, but nothing since:

Anyway I think what you've done in next, make the code depend on
COMMON_CLOCK, is the best option. If anyone cares about that driver on
powerpc platforms that don't support COMMON_CLOCK they should speak up.
