You mean ARC architecture here ?

Yes, it can be any platform specific data. Yes, but it is better
handled by the clk driver in your case and cpufreq driver just needs
to call clk_set_rate().

Not that I am aware of. Just make copies for every board or if you can
use device tree, get it using OPP tables.
