I guess the utility code can just call of_machine_is_compatible() during
probe, and so not require the machine driver to pass the value in. That
doesn't feel /too/ gross, and avoids having to export any new soc_is()
or similar APIs for Tegra.

Does that seem reasonable to you?

In the longer run, I suspect the clock naming differences that are keyed
off this flag to be handled by clock properties in DT, but that relies
on common clock bindings being in place first. I'm not sure if it makes
sense to put the PLL rate information into the DT too, or not.
