I see, bummer.

Hmm, wouldn't something like this be a candidate for adding a:

devm_clk_prepare_enable() helper?

This seems better then having the driver(s) make + error check separate
clk_prepare_enable() + devm_add_action_or_reset() calls ?

I must admit I'm guilty myself of just using devm_add_action() sometimes
when a specific devm helper is missing, but this whole discussion makes
me think that it would be good to have some extra devm helpers for
common cases / driver cleanup patterns.

If we add a devm_clk_prepare_enable() helper that should probably be added
to drivers/clk/clk-devres.c and not to drivers/base/devres.c .

I also still wonder if we cannot find a better place for this new
devm_delayed_work_autocancel() helper but nothing comes to mind.

Regards,

Hans
