Yes, we should use generic "fixed-clock" in DT to model the external
root clock. Registering the external clock from within the CMU driver
is a legacy method that predates generic "fixed-clock" and should be
avoided.  

That said I think this temporary stub driver is not needed at all, 
you could well define a fixed clock in DT and reference it in the UART 
node, as Krzysztof suggested.
