Good idea!

I've looked through the individual ones and commented a bit on
what I think may or may not happen with them.

ralink SOC_MT7621 is the only one that I think you got wrong,
as it already has common-clk support.

Ah nice, I thought there were more than two implementations
left. I need to refresh the series for OMAP1 that I did last year
and debug the regression that caused. I think Linus Walleij
has looked into the ep93xx one at some point.

This was last touched in 2012 when TMS320C6678 support
was added. It seems to be based on the original same code
as omap1 and omap2 that eventually turned into the common
clock subsystem, so it would clearly be possible to do a
step-by-step conversion like I did for omap1, but I suspect
we can wait for all of c6x-linux to become obsolete enough.

The coldfire clock implementation looks rather simple compared
to chips from the 2010s: most chips have only fixed clocks,
and three of them have one of two registers of clock gates.

It shouldn't be hard to convert, but enabling common-clk will
cause a noticeable kernel size increase on the fairly limited
hardware.

Simply enabling COMMON_CLK in m5475evb_defconfig
results in a 1.7% or 40KB growth in kernel size, plus there
would be additional dynamic memory usage:

I suspect this platform is fairly dead, OpenWRT dropped support for it,
and the known machines have at most 16MB of RAM, which limits
the number of use cases that also want to build recent kernels.

All three of these are older platforms that still have a number of machines
supported in OpenWRT, so there is hope that someone would do the work
to add common-clk support. Both Lantiq and Ralink have been converted
to device tree not too long ago.

I think the RALINK entry needs to be changed, as this includes
SOC_MT7621, which already uses COMMON_CLK.

For all I can tell, this driver only uses the clock interface for
its cpufreq driver, and the actual API definition looks bogus.

Half of it could be folded into the cpufreq driver, and the rest
of it removed, along with arch/mips/include/asm/clock.h

It's going to be hard to find anyone willing to touch this, as the code
is very large but has few users these days.

drivers/sh/clk/ is basically a generic clk subsystem on its own, and
there are at least 28 different arch/sh SoCs with drivers for it.
