I can see your point, and it's also true that target/threshold seem to
imply the use of power_allocator, which may not always be the case.

Sounds good, thanks!

I didn't really dislike it, was just wondering if renaming nodes could
break existing users. I imagine it's not a huge problem after all,
since users with an older kernel version won't see the DT change and
probably should use the phandle anyway.

Thanks for sharing your approach!

Sure, we'll run some tests with the new configuration on our site.

Thanks
