Ok Grant, good to know. I did not have time to check how the bindings
changed, but at least for vexpress I was registering and binding clocks
from DT. Here is the vexpress list of tasks updated.

Versatile express tasks:
[lorenzo-pieralisi] enable dtb support in u-boot: DONE within Linaro ?
[lorenzo-pieralisi] enable basic kernel dtb support on versatile
express: DONE
[lorenzo-pieralisi] probe clocks from dt: DONE
[lorenzo-pieralisi] probe irq controllers from device tree: DONE (basic
GIC init - interrupt routing is not there yet)
[lorenzo-pieralisi] register devices from dt: 

Currently all vexpress platform devices are registered from the DT code,
but I have to rebase to see if things changed wrt test-devicetree 

They include:

smsc911x (mdio inclusive but pending code to probe irq type)
flash physmap

The GIC and sp804 timers are also initialized from DT (they need not be
platform devices though).

Please let me know if you need further details.
