I don't ask for or provide guarantees, but I think we can at least *try*
to keep this compatible. This version works at the moment, and should
also work with future DTs - within the limits of the current driver, so
only using the RC clock. It allows to later improve the accuracy by
adding better input clocks - and later DT/driver combinations can make
use of this.

I don't see how this would complicate probing beyond what Allwinner
brought upon us already anyway: no LOSC crystal input in this package
version, but having this pin in some other SoC sharing this die
(according to some BSP) sources. We can't expect a super clean driver
with those HW design choices.

If we really cannot keep the DT compatible, fair enough: that's what
it is (there is no guarantee!), but at least we have tried.

Cheers,
Andre
