No, this is not how the rest of refcounted APIs work in the kernel. You
do not take over other's references and if you need to store pointer to
refcounted object you are responsible for taking your own reference. See
how we work with device structures, OF nodes, etc, etc.

The proper pattern here should be (unless the driver wants to hold on to
the clock for its own purposes):

	clk = of_clk_get(dev->of_node, i));
	ret = pm_clk_add_clk(dev, clk);
	clk_put(clk);

with pm_clk_add_clk() taking and managing _its own_ reference and the
caller (driver) managing _its_ reference.

So FWIW strong NAK here from me.

Thanks.
