no, it is not shared with another device (to my knowledge).

indeed, I could use devm_clk_hw_register in the MMC driver.
Ulfs concern was that a lot of code was needed for managing the clocks
and I agree with him. so this is my way of keeping those details away
from the MMC driver and have two separate drivers which are better to
understand overall.
