Hi Stephen

Thank you for your feedback.

I understand your point, but I think devm_get_clk_from_child()
needs new DT setings, and it can't keep compatibility, or
it makes driver complex.
I think it is nice to have. but, I want to keep current style.
Thus, I will try to use current of_clk_get() as-is, and
call clk_free() somehow in this driver.
