Please explain in the commit message why you have two methods of
handling the clocks PCI space, as without that it seems like some of
the code is either un-necessary or not clear why it's there.

Your file is missing Copyrights, is that your intent?

I didn't have any comments for the rest of the patch, except that there
is a lack of comments and communication of intent of the code. I can
see what it does, but think of the point of view of a kernel consumer
getting this code in the future and wanting to extend it or debug it,
and the code being able to talk to "future you" who has no idea why the
code was there or what it was trying to do.
