Subject: Re: [PATCH 4/4] clk: zynq: Use of_init_clk_data()

Hi Stephen,

I guess Josh is the better person to talk about this, since he created the
patches regarding common clock for mainline, but I tried running your series
and ran into this:

Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x0000000b

A probably unique thing I do is, I set the status of uart0 to disabled. This way
I can reuse my rootfs which does not run getty on ttyPS1. And this worked fine
