last time i tried to specify the both clocks as suggest by the binding
document (took genet125 for wol, not sure this is correct), but this
caused an abort on the BCM2711. In the lack of documentation i stopped
further investigations. As i saw that Jeremy send this patch, i wanted
to share my current results and retestet it with this version which
doesn't crash. I don't know the reason why both clocks should be
specified, but this patch should be acceptable since the RPi 4 doesn't
support wake on LAN.

Best regards
