I'm not sure if I understand your question correctly. Basically, setting
<&rpmpd MSM8916_VDDMX_AO> as "parent genpd" of <&cpr> is supposed to
describe that there is a direct relationship between the performance
states of CPR and VDDMX. When changing the CPR performance state, VDDMX
should also be adjusted accordingly.

This is implemented in the genpd core in _genpd_set_performance_state().
It loops over the parent genpds, and re-evaluates the performance states
of each of them. Translation happens using genpd_xlate_performance_state()
which is just a direct call to dev_pm_opp_xlate_performance_state().
This will look up the required-opps from the OPP table above. However,
the genpd core calls ->set_performance_state() on the parent genpd
directly, so dev_pm_opp_set_opp() isn't involved in this case.

Overall the call sequence for a CPUfreq switch will look something like:

 - cpu0: dev_pm_opp_set_rate(998.4 MHz)
  - cpu0: _set_required_opps(opp-998400000)
   - genpd:1:cpu0: dev_pm_opp_set_opp(&cpr_opp3)
    - genpd:1:cpu0: _set_opp_level(&cpr_opp3)
     - cpr: _genpd_set_performance_state(3)

      # genpd: translate & adjust parent performance states
      - cpr: genpd_xlate_performance_state(parent=VDDMX_AO)
             => &rpmpd_opp_super_turbo = 6
       - VDDMX_AO: _genpd_set_performance_state(6)
        - rpmpd: ->set_performance_state(VDDMX_AO, 6)

      # genpd: change actual performance state
      - cpr: ->set_performance_state(cpr, 3)

Before the discussion with Uffe I did not describe this relationship
between CPR<->VDDMX as parent-child, I just had them as two separate
power domains in the CPU OPP table. That worked fine too but Uffe
suggested the parent-child representation might be better.
   
Does that help or were you looking for something else? :D

Thanks,
Stephan
