The problem here is that a debug and production device are using the
same device tree, i.e msm8998.dtsi. Disabling coresight devices in
the DTS file will allow the laptop to boot but completely disabled
coresight blocks on the MTP board. Leaving things as is breaks the
laptop but allows coresight to be used on the MTP board. One of three
things can happen:

1) Nothing gets done and production board can't boot without DTS modifications.
2) Disable tags are added to the DTS file and the debug board can't
use coresight without modifications.
2) The handling of the debug power domain is done properly on the
MSM8998 rather than relying on the bootloader to enable it.
3) The DTS file is split or reorganised to account for debug/production devices.

Which of the above ends up being the final solution is entirely up to
David and Andy.
