I guess this code isn't in mainline, though? In that case you can
always add a revert of this commit to your out of tree patches if you
need to.

Let me know if you run into any trouble with that - I don't have any
systems which could usefully use such support so I'm unlikely to work on
it directly and from what you were saying you'll need to integrate with
existing power domain code anyway.

Which might've happened sooner if we'd noticed :) There were some other
platforms doing similar things but they mostly used the clock API since
it was always entirely platform code until 3.4 so they're less intrusive
into the generic code.
