Not sure I follow that. I think we should only have these controlled via
sysfs. It will be a bit complex as two related controls, but that is a common situation
and there is usually a sensible combination of options that makes sense.

For example, if we can meet the sampling frequency requested with the lower
power oscillator we go for that.

Sorry, but no. As mentioned in the driver thread, this doesn't sound like
a characteristic of the hardware (board etc) so it doesn't belong in DT.
It may be challenging to implement an interface that makes sense, but
that doesn't mean we can avoid doing it.

Understood, but that is clearly expressed by the 'required' above.
It's easy enough to understand how to not have parts that aren't
required without an example.
