You should generally include the binding before the code to parse it,
both because the binding is required in order to tell if the code is
doing the right thing and also because people will often not even look
at code with a missing binding.

This is a name based lookup of clocks but the code doesn't use
apb_pclk at all; it needs to or the binding needs to say that apb_pclk
must be the first listed clock (which would not be good).

This omits a lot of configurability that is in platform data and
replaces it by reading back the parameters from the hardware.  If this
is a viable approach to that configuration you should do this for both
platform data and device tree rather than only device tree.  The point
with keeping platform data is that it's not good to make the device DT
only, improving the usability of platform data in a way that happens to
also make the DT case easier is totally fine.  If we can determine how
the IP is configured from the hardware that's both less work and more
robust no matter how the device is instantiated.
