This change seems like a hack. Do you intend for it to be merged and then
later reverted in Linus's tree? Could it instead be implemented in a way
that does not require reverting and instead is enabled by some DT
property? Alternatively, could this feature be added to the power domain
core since it is relatively generic?

Clearly these calls will result in max level requests being sent for all
power domains at probe time. However, it isn't clear that this will
actually help at runtime in these two cases:

1. A consumer enables and then disables a power domain.
- It seems like the PD would just be disabled in this case.

2. A consumer sets a non-max performance state of a power domain.
- It seems like the PD would just be set to the new lower
performance state since the max vote isn't known to the
PD core for aggregation purposes.

Thanks,
David
