I won't say that I changed DT because of a design issue with kernel,
rather the DT shall be complete by itself and that's why that change
was made.

And then we can have more things going on. For example with cpuidle
cooling, we can individually control each CPU (and force idle on that)
even if all CPUs are part of the same freq-domain. Each CPU shall
expose its capabilities.

I won't say it that way. I see it as all the CPUs are active during a
cooling state, i.e. they are all participating.

This is the right thing to do hardware description wise, no matter
what the kernel does.

I don't see any benefits of this to be honest. Even if we make this
change, the DT should remain in its current form.
