Thanks for the suggestion, I really like that idea!

If I understand the assigned-clocks-parent property correctly it's meant to select
one of the possible parents of e.g. a mux clock at startup. Internally it just
uses clk_set_parent which, unless I'm mistaken, would require to assign each
clock as a possible parent of every other clock.

Now the good news is that Apple seems to have sorted the clocks topologically
on the bus, i.e. there never is a clock at address X that requires a parent
with an address bigger than X.
The bad news is that I'd probably still have to setup clocks at 0x0, 0x4,
0x8, ..., X-0x4 as possible parents of the clock at X.

Another possibility this made me think of is to instead just use the clocks
property the way it's usually used and simply refer to the controller itself, e.g.

#define APPLE_CLK_UART0 0x270
#define APPLE_CLK_UART_P 0x220
#define APPLE_CLK_SIO 0x1c0

pmgr0: clock-controller@23b700000 {
compatible = "apple,t8103-gate-clock";
#clock-cells = <1>;
reg = <0x2 0x3b700000 0x0 0x4000>;
clock-output-names = "clock-sio", "clock-uart-", "clock-uart0";
clocks = <&some_dummy_root_clock>, <&pmgr0 APPLE_CLK_SIO>,
<&pmgr0 APPLE_CLK_UART_P>;

to represent the UART clocks

UART0 (0x23b700270), parent: UART_P
UART_P (0x23b700220), parent: SIO
SIO (0x23b7001c0), parent: n/a

and then have the consumer as

serial0: serial@235200000 {
// ...
clocks = <&pmgr0 APPLE_CLK_UART0>, <&clk24>;
clock-names = "uart", "clk_uart_baud0";
// ...

I'd have to see if it's possible to implement this sanely though if this binding
was acceptable. The self-reference to a node that hasn't been fully initialized
yet may turn out to be ugly.

Yup, absolutely. I don't want to write this all out by hand if I can avoid
that :-)
