A temporary solution would have to be NOT in DT because once you add
something into DT you are stuck with it for some time. You could
simply support independent clocks by looking at the platform type, but
that is still risky since you may want to define the OPP in DT
differently for the 2 cases.

The other problem with temporary solutions is once they are accepted,
people loose motivation to create the permanent solution. "Can you
take this now and I'll fix the issues later" is a red flag to
maintainers.
