Subject[PATCH v2 0/3] PM / Domains: Add power on/off notifiers for genpd
Changes in v2:
- Improved error handling in patch3.

A device may have specific HW constraints that must be obeyed to, before its
corresponding PM domain (genpd) can be powered off - and vice verse at power
on. These constraints can't be managed through the regular runtime PM based
deployment for a device, because the access pattern for it, isn't always
request based. In other words, using the runtime PM callbacks to deal with the
constraints doesn't work for these cases.

For these reasons, this series introduces a power on/off notification mechanism
to genpd. To add/remove a notifier for a device, the device must already have
been attached to the genpd, which also means that it needs to be a part of the
PM domain topology.

The intent is to allow these genpd power on/off notifiers to replace the need
for the existing CPU_CLUSTER_PM_ENTER|EXIT notifiers. For example, those would
otherwise be needed in psci_pd_power_off() in cpuidle-psci-domain.c, when
powering off the CPU cluster.

Another series that enables drivers/soc/qcom/rpmh-rsc.c to make use of the new
genpd on/off notifiers, are soon to be posted. However, I would appreciate any
feedback on the approach taken, even before that series hits LKML.

Kind regards
Ulf Hansson

PM / Domains: Rename power state enums for genpd
PM / Domains: Allow to abort power off when no ->power_off() callback
PM / Domains: Add support for PM domain on/off notifiers for genpd
