This is a follow-up of the discussion I had with Arnd and Magnus during
the LCJ last month.
Namely, one of the limitations of the current generic PM domains code is that
pm_genpd_add_callbacks() has to be executed after the device in question has
been added to a PM domain. This means that, if a driver wants to run this
routine from its .probe() callback, it cannot be registered before adding
the device to the PM domain, which potentially may be a problem when device
trees get involved into the system initialization.
For this reason, it is desirable to allow pm_genpd_add_callbacks() to be called
for devices that haven't been added to any generic PM domains yet and the
following patches attempt to make that happen.
[1/2] Add reference counter for objects used to store PM domains data related
[2/2] Make it possible to call pm_genpd_add_callbacks() before the device is
added to a PM domain.
