The CG_STATUSx and LPI_MASKx bits meaning is not matching according to
documentation I have. I guess you've got something newer than REV0.00?

In my Exynos5420 UM ACLK_266_G2D is associated with CG_STATUS0 register
bits 22, 21, which in turn correspond to NR3D and DIS IP blocks, i.e.
the camera subsystem. Such a dependency would be rather surprising.

Exactly, I checked some kernels from
(e.g. for CG_STATUSx, but I didn't find anything
related to these registers yet, except the address macro definitions
and debug traces in the power domains driver.

Let's try to diagnose the issue best we can, then we would choose the most
accurate bug fix.
