Not at present, although supporting that will probably be part of
Tegra's support of the common clock API and DT bindings.

I'm not actually sure that's true. I believe we measure the OSC
frequency during boot, and all the clock driver PLL tables have (or
should have) entries for the various supported crystal frequencies. I
wouldn't be too surprised if it all just worked, or could easily be
fixed to.

(I wouldn't consider this to be related to board file deprecation, since
there are currently no board files to be deprecated that rely on such a
feature anyway)
