Probably, but I have changed his patches substantially and I'm not 
really working with him on this (though I appreciate his involvement in 
the discussion). I'm going to put myself as Author: in the next version, 
and just mention that I based it off his previous work.

Yeah, I'm not completely happy myself with clk_core or with either of 
those. But I like that the new API is prefixed with clk_provider_ as it 
clearly indicates that it's to be used by providers and not by 
consumers. Unfortunately, struct clk_provider would be misleading, so 
I'm not really sure of what would be a good name for struct clk_core.

Probably the least bad suggestion I have heard of is to have struct 
clk_internal and clk_internal_get_rate, instead of struct clk_core and 
clk_provider_get_rate.

Wonder if there are more opinions on this.

Thanks,

Tomeu
