Subject: [PATCH v3] soc: qcom: rpmhpd: Make power_on actually enable the domain

The general expectation is that powering on a power-domain should make
the power domain deliver some power, and if a specific performance state
is needed further requests has to be made.

But in contrast with other power-domain implementations (e.g. rpmpd) the
RPMh does not have an interface to enable the power, so the driver has
to vote for a particular corner (performance level) in rpmh_power_on().

But the corner is never initialized, so a typical request to simply
enable the power domain would not actually turn on the hardware. Further
more, when no more clients vote for a performance state (i.e. the
aggregated vote is 0) the power domain would be turned off.

Fix both of these issues by always voting for a corner with non-zero
value, when the power domain is enabled.

The tracking of the lowest non-zero corner is performed to handle the
corner case if there's ever a domain with a non-zero lowest corner, in
which case both rpmh_power_on() and rpmh_rpmhpd_set_performance_state()
would be allowed to use this lowest corner.

Fixes: 279b7e8a62cc ("soc: qcom: rpmhpd: Add RPMh power domain driver")
Signed-off-by: Bjorn Andersson <>

Changes since v2:
- Fixed two spelling mistakes in the commit message
- Changed the last hunk to search for first non-zero level, rather than the
  first non-zero index (i.e. 1)
