Hi Laurent and Sylwester, My apologies for the late answer.

Typically the sensor's external clock is derived from another clock using a divisor. This means there's usually quite limited selection of possible clock frequencies since the sensors usually have a small range of possible frequencies such as 6 -- 27 MHz or even less. Also it's important to choose the frequency in such a way that it doesn't interfere with other devices in the system. The frequency also must be picked so that one can achieve the desired highest data transfer rate. The sensors are also quite flexible in their internal clock tree configuration, but in the situation where the desired data rate is close to sensor limits there may be additional constraints. Still it's always possible to come up with a best value for the board while other values are inferior. For these reasons I see little point in providing anything else than just a single value for the external clock frequency.

The SMIA++ driver allows the platform data to have either the clock name or a function pointer to set the clock frequency. If the clock name is there it'll be used instead. The function pointer can be removed once it's no longer needed.
