No, that's not the way it works or should work for that matter.

It's the runtime PM status of the devices that are attached to a
genpd, that controls whether a genpd should be powered on/off.
Additionally, if there is a child domain powered on, then its parent
needs to be powered on too and so forth.

Okay, I will have a look over there. Thanks!
