Russell what's your plan for the patch? Maybe under the given circumstances it
makes sense to let it go through the m68k tree.

Ok, I've merged it but there was no indication in the patch that it was
supposed to be a fix... there's no cc: to stable. Does it need to go to
stable? When was this brokenness introduced? What's the story for the
m68k bit?

For the m68k issues this is not a candidate for stable. The breakage
that this fixes did not occur until the 3.6 merge window.

The fact that it fixes some breakage on some m68k platforms is more
of a side effect, and the original patch author would not have known
about this. The underlying problem was with the local m68k/coldfire
implementation of devm_clk_get, but this patch makes that code go
away completely.
