That is a good question. I think it is worth waiting on Saravana's
patch which exposes non-private members of struct clk via struct
clk_hw. This will have an effect on both platform clock data and

I do not think that there is a point in pushing another series out
until I get that in since it will shake things up for platforms trying
to convert over. And due to the invasive nature I'm still not sure if
this stuff will go into an -rc or some -next branch for 3.5. I don't
see the harm in keeping it in a -next branch for 3.5 where all
platforms can base on that branch since they will be queuing up for
3.5 anyway.
