The return value of of_parse_clkspec() is peculiar. If the function is
called with a NULL argument for 'name' it will return -ENOENT, but if
it's called with a non-NULL argument for 'name' it will return -EINVAL.
This peculiarity is documented by commit 5c56dfe63b6e ("clk: Add comment
about __of_clk_get_by_name() error values").

Let's further document this function so that it's clear what the return
value is and how to use the arguments to parse clk specifiers.

Hrmm.. the subject is misleading. Let me reword it and resend.

- * Beware the return values when np is valid, but no clock provider is found.
- * If name == NULL, the function returns -ENOENT.
- * If name != NULL, the function returns -EINVAL. This is because
- * of_parse_phandle_with_args() is called even if of_property_match_string()
- * returns an error.
+/**
+ * of_parse_clkspec() - Parse a DT clock specifier for a given device node
+ * @np: device node to parse clock specifier from
+ * @index: index of phandle to parse clock out of. If index < 0, @name is used
+ * @name: clock name to find and parse. If name is NULL, the index is used
+ * @out_args: Result of parsing the clock specifier
+ *
+ * Parses a device node's "clocks" and "clock-names" properties to find the
+ * phandle and cells for the index or name that is desired. The resulting clock
+ * specifier is placed into @out_args, or an errno is returned when there's a
+ * parsing error. The @index argument is ignored if @name is non-NULL.
+ *
+ * Example:
+ *
+ * phandle1: clock-controller@1 {
+ *	#clock-cells = <2>;
+ * }
+ *
+ * phandle2: clock-controller@2 {
+ *	#clock-cells = <1>;
+ * }
+ *
+ * clock-consumer@3 {
+ *	clocks = <&phandle1 1 2 &phandle2 3>;
+ *	clock-names = "name1", "name2";
+ * }
+ *
+ * To get a device_node for `clock-controller@2' node you may call this
+ * function a few different ways:
+ *
+ *   of_parse_clkspec(clock-consumer@3, -1, "name2", &args);
+ *   of_parse_clkspec(clock-consumer@3, 1, NULL, &args);
+ *   of_parse_clkspec(clock-consumer@3, 1, "name2", &args);
+ *
+ * Return: 0 upon successfully parsing the clock specifier. Otherwise, -ENOENT
+ * if @name is NULL or -EINVAL if @name is non-NULL and it can't be found in
+ * the "clock-names" property of @np.
