actually I don't see a problem here because this specific MMC
controller has a clock controller built into it.
Rob also didn't see any problem with this when he reviewed the dt-bindings

since I was also curious how this turns out I first implemented your
suggestion to use a similar clk_hw registration style as
That made the code easier to read - thank you for the suggestion!

On top of that I switched from clk_hw_onecell_data to directly
accessing "clk_hw.clk".
Unfortunately the diffstat is not as great as I hoped, it saves 21
lines (11 in the driver code, 6 in the soc.dtsi, 5 in the dt-bindings)
Once devm_clk_hw_get_clk() is implemented 8 lines have to be added
again for error checking.
I attached the patch for the drivers/mmc/host/meson-mx-sdhc* parts if
you are curious (it'll apply only on top of my github branch, not on
this series).

Please let me know if you want me to submit an updated series where I
directly access "clk_hw.clk" to get the "struct clk" or if I should
keep clk_hw_onecell_data.
If it's the former then I'll also add a TODO comment for the
conversion to devm_clk_hw_get_clk() so it's easy to find.
