Fair enough.

Alright. Since Qcom would be the only user of clock and power handling
for the time being, I think checking power domain presence could work
for us. +/- the fact that clocks need to be handled even if power
domain is not present, but we should normally always have both.

Now we need a way to do the check. Perhaps for the time being it would
be enough to just check for the power-domains property in DT?

Best regards,
