    Since the runtime PM framework takes the parent-child relationships into
    accout, I think it should also follow the "master"-"slave" dependencies if they
    are represented at the core level.

    Still, at this point the question really is how many off-tree dependencies
    there are, because the best way to represent them will follow from that.
