It sounds a little clumsy to have a device driver to match a device that
you create just for matching the driver.

Would it be possible to separate the debugging logic from the platform
device logic? I think it may be useful to have a debugfs or sysfs
inteface for all clocks in the system, even if that is disabled by
default or only available after manually loading a module implementing
that functionality.
