SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] i2c: i2c-qcom-geni: Add support for 'assigned-performance-states'
Sorry Roja for dragging this too long, unfortunately I didn't have a
lot to add on. Lemme try start this thread again.

So I looked again at that thread in detail today. The basic idea was
to enable/disable the genpd from within the OPP core and there were
doubts on how to do that efficiently as there are cases where domains
may be enabled for an OPP, but not for others.. etc. etc.

I am not sure if I consider that thread as part of the discussion we
are having here, they may be related, but that thread doesn't block
anything to be done in the genpd core.

What about doing this just for the assigned-performance-state case as
the clients don't want to play with it at all.
