Okay, will improve the changelog.

Will see if I can do it any better, though I really doubt it :)

So we pass the use_lock parameter to this routine as well ?

Sure, but the ordering of locks is always subdomain first and then master.
Considering the case of Qcom, we have two domains Cx (sub-domain) and Mx (master).

On first genpd_power_on(Cx) call, we will first call genpd_power_on(Mx) which
will just power it on as none of its master will have perf-state support. We
then call _genpd_power_on(Cx) which will also not do anything with Mx as its own
(Cx's) pstate would be 0 at that time. But even if it had a valid value, it will
propagate just fine with all proper locking in place.

I will wait for your reply on this particular patch before sending out V3.
Thanks for the reviews Ulf.
