The Tegra GENPD driver enable/disable clocks when domain is turned on.
This can't be done during early system resume, when domains are getting
turned on by the drivers core, because when clock is enabled, it's
getting prepared (RPM-resumed) and this preparation fails because
performance state of the clock goes up and it doesn't work during the
early resume time since I2C, which applies the state to hardware, is
suspended and can't work at that early time.

Secondly, Tegra has arch-specific low level assembly which touches
clocks during last phase of system suspend and in the beginning of
resume. Hence, clocks should stay prepared during suspend just because
technically clock should be prepared before it can be enabled.

This is not about domain staying powered on, this is about keeping the
performance state of the domain high during suspend.
