Yes, the uniphy implements the clock provider that supports changing
rate, which will be upstream later, and nss_cc_mac5_rx_clk_src is the
special case, which is only used in the switch device qca8386.

Ok great.

For the phy device qca8084(uniphy has only 312.5M fix clock which is
registered by device tree), this clock nss_cc_mac5_rx_clk_src is not used.

The issue for the switch device(qca8386) here is the clock rate of
parent uniphy can't be changed because of the clock rate requirement of
branch clock, since the uniphy clock rate is decided by the current
working interface mode(PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_2500BASEX with 312.5M or

Got it.

For example, when the uniphy works on PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_2500BASEX, then
the parent uniphy clock rate is 312.5M, which is decided by hardware and
can't be changed. when a branch clock requires a 25M clock, the parent
uniphy clock maybe updated to 125M by clock framework if the flag
CLK_SET_RATE_PARENT is set here, but the actual hardware clock rate of
uniphy is still 315.5M since the uniphy still works in the interface

If the parent rate can't change because CLK_SET_RATE_PARENT is missing
and the hardware doesn't allow it, then perhaps instead of having a
frequency table we should have rcg clk ops for determine_rate that
simply looks at the parent rates and finds the rate closest to what is
desired. And for the set_rate clk_op we can have it be simple and just
program a fixed divider. The benefit is less frequency tables that don't
do anything and less hard-coding of the frequency. I thought we already
had those rcg clk_ops but I couldn't find them with a quick glance.

Thanks Stephen for the suggestion.
looks you are saying the clk ops clk_dp_ops for the fix parent rate? which seems not meet the clock requirement of this clock.

For the device qca8k, it is also possible to switch the interface modes between PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_2500BASEX(312.5M) and PHY_INTERFACE_MODE_SGMII(125M) during the running time, and there are multiple parent clock source(P_UNIPHY0_RX or P_UNIPHY0_TX) for the RCG clocks to select according to the current work mode. so the parent_map and freq_tbl are necessary to this clock.

such as the following clock table, same parent clock rate has the different parent source.

+static const struct parent_map nss_cc_uniphy0_rx_tx_map[] = {
+	{ P_XO, 0 },
+	{ P_UNIPHY0_RX, 1 },
+	{ P_UNIPHY0_TX, 2 },
+static const struct freq_tbl ftbl_nss_cc_mac5_rx_clk_src[] = {
+	F(50000000, P_XO, 1, 0, 0),
+	F(125000000, P_UNIPHY0_RX, 1, 0, 0),
+	F(125000000, P_UNIPHY0_TX, 1, 0, 0),
+	F(312500000, P_UNIPHY0_RX, 1, 0, 0),
+	F(312500000, P_UNIPHY0_TX, 1, 0, 0),
+	{ }
