Which looks like discussion about different bindings. You had there a
clock controller and additional clock device using "sprd,syscon". Why
the rpll is a subdevice and not a part of clock controller. The same as
all other clocks coming from that clock-controller, right? What is so
special about rpll that is is a separate device, not part of the clock
controller? It's the same address space, isn't it?

Best regards,
Krzysztof
