Generally when you call clk_get(dev, NULL), you'll pass in the consumer
device as "dev". Now the avr32 clock implementation compares that to the
device associated with the clock, which for the case of the PWM pwm0_mck
is the PWM controller (at32_add_device_pwm() for reference). So it seems
to be set up properly (the PWM controller is the consumer).

Also since the consumer ID isn't specified to the clk_get() call, the
name of the clock (what's being changed in the above hunk) shouldn't
matter because it won't match anyway.

Now that I look at it more closely, I wonder how clk_get(dev, NULL) can
even work on avr32, since there's no check for id == NULL and therefore
NULL will be blindly passed into strcmp() and then crash.
