Remove the 'clock-freq-min-max' property that is kept to maintain
the compatibility.

Removing a property without telling the user what to expect is a bad
idea and ABI breakage.

What's the general process to remove a property?

I guess we should do:
1) deprecate it in the first place and remove it from all upstream DT
2) wait some long enough days for expecting the stale of all old DTB
containing that property
3) remove the functionality of the deprecated property from the driver
but still leave some warning there
4) remove the left warning finally

And for the ABI breakage, we should add something in Documentation/ABI
/obsolete  or Documentation/ABI/removed ?

Best Regards
Shawn Lin
