Do you mean enabling CONFIG_COMMON_CLK on x86?

I agree and it is cleaner to have the same API for all arches. However, I'm
not sure how do we create the fixed clocks then? There is nothing in ACPI
namespace (or in the ACPI 5.0 spec) that allows you to describe clocks and
their relationships.

So then we end up either:

1. Creating a custom board file for Lynxpoint which creates the
clocks. This is something I think x86 maintainers don't want to

2. Creating the clock in the driver itself in its ACPI enumeration
implementation. This might work but it litters the drivers with
clock details.

Or is there something I'm missing?
