Make sure we don't OOPS in case clock-frequency is set to 0 in a DT. The
variable set here is later used as a divisor.

Hi Uwe,
If my understand is correct, you prefer to make it return error rather
than using default frequency setting if DT setting is wrong.

v2: Make probe return error instead of using default frequency.

No, I'd say it doesn't matter that the driver crashes if something
invalid is specified in the device tree. This is not a driver bug, but a
dt bug. So if it happens, fix the device tree, no need to modify the
driver.

Best regards
Uwe

I know that such case is a DT bug.
But the intention of this patch is to avoid oops rather than fix dt.
Make probe return error is enough to inform developer fixing dt.

an oops is also enough, and maybe even better because $developer cannot
miss it.

I don't care much, because the error probably won't happen. If you ask
me, I like your v2 better.

Best regards
