Is there anything speaking against adding this function and only accept
the GPU partition as valid parameter for now. So at least the interface
stays symmetric and can be easily extended if any future partitions have
similar characteristics as the GPU one.

I see what it does, the question is more about why this is needed.
What is the Tegra interconnect? According to the TRM the Tegra contains
some standard AXI <-> AHB <-> APB bridges. That a read is needed to
assure the write is posted to the APB bus seems to imply that there is
some write buffering in one of those bridges. Can we get this documented
somewhere?

And isn't it needed for the other partition ungating function too then?

Lucas
