Given that it is currently much less than the default threshold, it
seems ok to me as-is. However, if it looks like you patch to add the
device struct to the gpd struct is going to be accepted, then it is fine
with me. Maybe we should wait for you patch to be accepted then this can
be applied as a fix.
