Dear Rob,

Sorry for the late reply.

Oh Okay. I'll remove _clk. Thanks.

Oops, I'll remove the fourth parameter. Thanks a lot.

Okay. I'll replace it with '-'. Thanks.

Please let me explain the reason why I add SVS sub-nodes. I ever try to
parse other nodes to get desired power-domains/OPP table. However, it
makes SVS driver harder to develop and maintain.

1. When a SVS-controller-init wants GPU_CORE0's OPP table in one node
but it needs power-domains(GPU_MFG_2D) in another node, it becomes
complicated and confusing when SVS sub-node tries to parse many nodes.
Therefore, we want SVS sub-node to focus on what SVS bank requires by
how we do in this patch.

2. In hardware point of view, SVS controller depends on other hardware's
power only. All the SVS controller registers are in SVS hardware. So, we
think It's good that SVS sub-node describes what SVS controller requires
instead of linking other subsys nodes and parse the property that SVS
controller needs.

3. We want SVS driver to have a generic way to attain subsys device for
using "pm_runtime and OPP framework" API. If SVS driver tries to parse
CPU(little/big core) and other subsys device node(e.g cci/gpu), it means
SVS driver has to maintain different methodologies(cpu-specific?
devfreq? others?) in order to get CPU(little/big core) and other subsys
device(e.g cci/gpu) for using "pm_runtime and OPP framework" API.
