The only issue I found might be at the omap3isp driver, which provides
clock to its sub-drivers and takes reference on the sub-driver modules.
When sub-driver calls clk_get() all modules would get locked in memory,
due to circular reference. One solution to that could be to pass NULL
struct device pointer, as in the below patch.

Doesn't that introduce race conditions ? If the sub-drivers require the clock,
they want to be sure that the clock won't disappear beyond their backs. I
agree that the circular dependency needs to be solved somehow, but we probably
need a more generic solution. The problem will become more widespread in the
future with DT-based device instantiation in both V4L2 and KMS.

I'm wondering whether subsystems and drivers itself should be written so
they deal with such dependencies they are aware of.

There is similar situation in the regulator API, regulator_get() simply
takes a reference on a module providing the regulator object.

Before a "more generic solution" is available, what do you think about
keeping obtaining a reference on a clock provider module in clk_get() and
doing clk_get(), clk_prepare_enable(), ..., clk_unprepare_disable(),
clk_put() in sub-driver whenever a clock is actively used, to avoid
permanent circular reference ?
