Yeah, this was my intent. There are a number of non-standard,
proprietary IP blocks on this soc who's 'organized clock number' come
'in between' the more standard bits, depending on how you decide to
organize them (based on their parent clocks, based on the order they
appear in the crg register block, whatever). I *do* intend on hopefully
putting together drivers for these as well, though that's a long-term
stretch goal.
