clocks.sh is a script used to dump the entire clock tree on old FSL
kernels, such as 2.6.35.

Kernel 3.10 uses the common clock framework, so the clock tree
information can be retrieved from the standard
/sys/kernel/debug location,  which means we don't really need a custom
clocks.sh script for the 3.10 kernel.

So the subject "imx-test: Stop installing clocks.sh in MX6" is not
correct, because the reason you don't install clocks.sh is not related
to the SoC itself. You just don't need to install it if you use a
recent kernel that deploys the common clock tree framework (like it is
the case for mx6 running 3.10).
