It is the clock for the genpd consumer device.

Sadly not former.

Our current solution is to add a clock property to the power domain node(NXP ARM SIP
based power domain driver), and when power_on/off, we enable/disable the clocks.

But we are moving to use SCMI power domain, and leave the clock in Linux,
Scmi power domain driver is a generic driver, and we are not able to mix clock
parts in the driver which is bad.

Your patch gives me a light that if we could use notification to let consumer
device driver do the clock enable/disable for each power on and power off.
That would be great.


Thanks,
Peng.
