For fixed-clock, the current code gets several variables holding the
rate and then return the rate from several get_rate functions.

static unsigned long external_high_reference, external_low_reference;
static unsigned long oscillator_reference, ckih2_reference;

static unsigned long get_high_reference_clock_rate(struct clk *clk)
        return external_high_reference;

static unsigned long get_low_reference_clock_rate(struct clk *clk)
        return external_low_reference;

static unsigned long get_oscillator_reference_clock_rate(struct clk *clk)
        return oscillator_reference;

static unsigned long get_ckih2_reference_clock_rate(struct clk *clk)
        return ckih2_reference;

With this new rate member added, all these can be consolidated into one.

For base address of pll, the current code uses the reference to clocks
statically defined to know which pll is the one.

static inline void __iomem *_mx51_get_pll_base(struct clk *pll)
#ifdef CONFIG_OF
        return pll->pll_base;
        if (pll == &pll1_main_clk)
                return MX51_DPLL1_BASE;
        else if (pll == &pll2_sw_clk)
                return MX51_DPLL2_BASE;
        else if (pll == &pll3_sw_clk)
                return MX51_DPLL3_BASE;

        return NULL;

static inline void __iomem *_get_pll_base(struct clk *pll)
        if (cpu_is_mx51())
                return _mx51_get_pll_base(pll);
                return _mx53_get_pll_base(pll);

I would say these two members were added to make dt clock code simple
and good.
