That's the part that I do understand. What I don't understand is why a
clock needs to be runtime suspend/resumed. Typically we suspend/resume
devices, and doing so typically involves disabling/enabling clocks. So
I don't understand why the clocks themselves now need to be runtime
suspended/resumed.

Perhaps I misunderstand the goal of the OPP framework. My understanding
was that this was to attach a table of operating points with a device so
that appropriate operating points could be selected and switched to when
the workload changes.

Typically these operating points would be roughly a clock rate and a
corresponding voltage for a regulator, so that when a certain clock rate
is requested, the regulator can be set to the matching voltage.

Hm... so is it that each of these clocks that you want to create a
platform device for has its own regulator? Because the patch series only
mentions the CORE domain, so I assumed that we would accumulate all the
clock rates for the clocks that are part of that CORE domain and then
derive a voltage to be supplied to that CORE domain.

But perhaps I just don't understand correctly how this is tied together.

I got confused by the "tegra-clock" driver that this series was adding.
This is actually a driver that will bind to the virtual clocks rather
than the CAR device itself.

For some reason I had assumed that you wanted to create a CAR driver in
order to get at the struct device embedded in the CAR's platform device
and use that as the parent for all these clocks.

So even if we absolutely need some struct device for these clocks, maybe
adding that CAR driver and making the clock struct device:s children of
the CAR device will help keep a bit of a proper hierarchy in sysfs.
