The clocks are implemented at the SoC glue layer and/or the
interconnect layer, and then the device probably has it's
own clock gate controls.

Yeah so that's standard Linux features such as PM runtime
and genpd basically :)

So you can just leave out the clocks paragraph from the
binding. Then if clocks are really needed beyond PM runtime
and genpd, those can always be added later.

We just need a super minimal binding to start with that
only uses standard properties, then more can be added
later if needed.
