Hi Tomeu,

Sorry for the late reply.

I tested your patch series on an at91 platform (sama5d3), and it works
as expected, but I had to fix some conflicts when applying your patches
on clk-next, and then got a few errors at compile time.

Anyway here is my branch with all those conflicts resolved: [1]. The
last commit [2] fixes the build errors (I'll let you squash/split the
changes as you wish).

Best Regards,

Boris
