Indeed, I was rebasing and reordering patches multiple times and looks like there is no reason not to squash these patches now.

When all of 6/7/8/9 patches are applied, the clk_notifier_register() becomes the last invocation of the probe function and clk_enable() is kept at the first place of the probe order. Hence the sequence you're suggesting is already incorrect because error-unwinding order usually should be opposite to the probe order. It looks to me that the current final result of these patches is already correct.
