The idea is that you put the clk name in 'clock-output-names' and the
driver needs to have support for it (and set the clk name based on the
name defined in the dts)

This driver doesn't have support for it and is actually hardcoded.
So you are right and I should just drop it.

But now another question... Since #clock-cells was added as a
requirement for clock-output-names, should I drop also that?

In theory #clock-cells should always be declared for clock providers, is
it right to add it in the conversion commit or I should put this change
in another commit? (since it's now an addition and now something required
to fix a bot warning)
