The binding describes the hardware, it should not matter who does the port.
However, any part of the tree that is not actually from TI should have a
vendor prefix indicating who made that part. IIRC, the SoC used in there
is from TI, so you should use something else for the on-soc components.

Ah, I see. It seems you forgot to add the clock maintainer to Cc in the
mail. Mike is the one who will have to take you patch anyway, so I assume
he will comment on this if you did it wrong.
