Subject: [RFC 0/4] clk/driver: platform: Fix kfree() of const memory on setting driver_override

Hi,

The problem
===========
Several device types (platform, amba, spi etc.) provide a driver_override
field.  On sysfs store or during device removal, they kfree() the
existing value.

However the users are unaware of this and set the driver_override like:

 	pdev->driver_override = "exynos5-subcmu";

which obviously leads to error.

Solution
========
I provided simple helper for platform device.  If this approach is
acceptable, I can convert also other buses, like AMBA, SPI.


Dependencies and pick up order
==============================
Patch 1: please pick it as is through clock tree
Patch 3: Depends on patch 1 (merge conflict) and 2.
Patch 4: Depends on patch 2.

Best regards,
Krzysztof
