PM / Domains: Add generic OF-based PM domain look-upv3.10/topic/genpd
This patch introduces generic code to perform PM domain look-up using device tree and automatically bind devices to their PM domains. Generic device tree bindings are introduced to specify PM domains of devices in their device tree nodes. Backwards compatibility with legacy Samsung-specific PM domain bindings is provided, but for now the new code is not compiled when CONFIG_ARCH_EXYNOS is selected to avoid collision with legacy code. This will change as soon as the Exynos PM domain code gets converted to use the generic framework in further patch. This patch was originally submitted by Tomasz Figa when he was employed by Samsung.

+* Generic PM domains
+System on chip designs are often divided into multiple PM domains that can be
+used for power gating of selected IP blocks for power saving by reduced leakage
+This device tree binding can be used to bind PM domain consumer devices with
+their PM domains provided by PM domain providers. A PM domain provider can be
+represented by any node in the device tree and can provide one or more PM
+domains. A consumer node can refer to the provider by a phandle and a set of
+phandle arguments (so called PM domain specifiers) of length specified by the
+#power-domain-cells property in the PM domain provider node.
+==PM domain providers==
+Required properties:
+ - #power-domain-cells : Number of cells in a PM domain specifier;
+ Typically 0 for nodes representing a single PM domain and 1 for nodes
+ providing multiple PM domains (e.g. power controllers), but can be any value
+ as specified by device tree binding documentation of particular provider.
+ power: power-controller@12340000 {
+ compatible = "foo,power-controller";
+ reg = <0x12340000 0x1000>;
+ #power-domain-cells = <1>;
+ };
+The node above defines a power controller that is a PM domain provider and
+expects one cell as its phandle argument.
+==PM domain consumers==
+Required properties:
+ - power-domains : A phandle and PM domain specifier as defined by bindings of
+ the power controller specified by phandle.
+ leaky-device@12350000 {
+ compatible = "foo,i-leak-current";
+ reg = <0x12350000 0x1000>;
+ power-domains = <&power 0>;
+ };
+The node above defines a typical PM domain consumer device, which is located
+inside a PM domain with index 0 of a power controller represented by a node
+with the label "power".
