I check my case, the dts properties emmcclk is defined for the rk3399.
(checked it I do not have an error, clk_get() works)
If clk_get() failed and we propagate error<0 to the phy-core.c which then
not increase the phy->init_count, but throw error message that something goes
wrong.

Someone should explain to me, why we should cover up an error.
