Because clock driver is the first component should be merged into
kernel tree. Otherwise, SoC couldn't be compiled at all since SoC &
clock are in two different git tree.

I also hope that SoC patches could be merged as soon as possible. But
we also need to follow up the comments on SoC patches from mailing
list. I can't not say when those SoC patches could be merged into
mainline since I'm not the gate keeper. I could only say that we're
making effort on this.
