My brain is still slowly absorbing all the code, but something tells
me that targets with no ACTIVE TCS will not work properly with non-OSI
mode unless you change your patches more. Specifically to make the
zero ACTIVE TCS case work I think you need a rpmh_flush() call after
_ALL_ calls to rpmh_write() and rpmh_write_batch() (even those
modifying ACTIVE state). rpmh_write_async() will be yet more
interesting because you'd have to flush in rpmh_tx_done() I guess?
...and also somehow you need to inhibit entering sleep mode if an
async write was in progress? Maybe easier to just detect the
"non-OSI-mode + 0 ACTIVE TCS" case at probe time and fail to probe?
