Actually, it's not used at all by the device itself. It's used only by
the driver to be able to follow that list whenever we need to
free/dump it.

What I wanted to make sure is that the structure is actually what I
declared above in memory, but it's true that it's completely useless
here.

True.

Those are global clocks, so it's not really part pof the driver
binding itself. But I can add them.

About the reparenting itself, other devices are actually fine having
any parent they want, only the DMA is picky about it (at least, from
what we know), so it made sense to me to put it into the driver
itself. Where would you put it?

Thanks,
Maxime
