Thanks for the patch series! Both patches cover a lot of ground, but
I'll focus on #2. It would be best to split the driver changes out
separately. You can introduce the common clk changes but not compile
them in, then change the drivers, then add the logic to compile the new
common clock driver all as separate patches.

As stated above, in the first patch only introduce
arch/mips/alchemy/common/clock, but don't compile it here in the

A quick glance through clock.c below looks pretty good. I'll go through
it in more detail once the other parts of the series are split out.

Additionally, it would be cool to push this driver out to drivers/clk/
if you are so inclined. It looks like your header dependencies are not
so bad as to make that task impossible. Just a suggestion from me.
