Up till now there was no single generic method to bind devices to their
power domains using Device Tree. Each platform has been doing this using
its own way, example of which are Exynos power domain bindings [1] and
look-up code [2].

This series is intended to change this and provide generic DT bindings for
power domain specification and generic code performing look-up of power
domains and binding them to devices.

First two patches are the most important part of this series, as they
introduce $subject. Patch 3 converts mach-exynos to use the new generic
method. Further patches are adding one more user of the new code,
mach-s3c64xx, with first 3 patches (4-6) required to clean-up its power
domain driver a bit and last 3 patches (9-11) adding display support for
Mini6410 board, including a node for display controller (FIMD) which is
a power domain consumer.

The design of DT bindings and provider code is heavily inspired by
implementation of clock providers in Common Clock Framework, while
the code binding devices to power domains by my Exynos power domain
implementation (now removed by this series ;)).

Successfully tested on Exynos4210-based Trats and Exynos4412-based Trats2
boards using MFC,

Changes since v2:
 - rebased onto current Rafael's linux-pm bleeding-edge branch,
 - dropped patches for s3c64xx for now. I will send them in separate series,
 - do not call pm_genpd_dev_need_restore(true) in genpd_bind_domain(),
 - fixed various stylistic issues reported in review comments.

Changes since v1 (RFC):
 - rebased onto current Rafael's linux-pm bleeding-edge branch,
 - reordered the patches a bit (to have the generic ones first),
 - dropped renaming of S3C64xx power domains (as suggested by Mark Brown),
 - added support for deferred probing (as suggested by Stephen Boyd),
 - fixed several minor issues pointed by Stephen Boyd,
 - replaced notifiers with direct hooks in driver core to make power domain
   support independent from specific bus type and allow error handling.

Tomasz Figa (3):
  base: power: Add generic OF-based power domain look-up
  drivercore: Bind/unbind power domain on probe/remove
  ARM: exynos: Move to generic power domain bindings
