FWIW I'm hitting this WARNing when trying to set up the parent domain
setup for CPR->RPMPD(MX) on MSM8916 that I discussed with Uffe recently
[1]. I know, me and all my weird OPP setups. :'D

Basically, I have cpufreq voting for performance states of the CPR genpd
(via required-opps). CPR is supposed to have <&rpmpd MSM8916_VDDMX_AO>
as parent genpd and translates to the parent performance state using the
"required-opps" in the *CPR* OPP table:

	cpr: power-controller@...8000 {
		compatible = "qcom,msm8916-cpr", "qcom,cpr";
		reg = <0x0b018000 0x1000>;
		/* ... */
		#power-domain-cells = <0>;
		operating-points-v2 = <&cpr_opp_table>;
		/* Supposed to be parent domain, not consumer */
		power-domains = <&rpmpd MSM8916_VDDMX_AO>;

		cpr_opp_table: opp-table {
			compatible = "operating-points-v2-qcom-level";

			cpr_opp1: opp1 {
				opp-level = <1>;
				qcom,opp-fuse-level = <1>;
				required-opps = <&rpmpd_opp_svs_soc>;
			};
			cpr_opp2: opp2 {
				opp-level = <2>;
				qcom,opp-fuse-level = <2>;
				required-opps = <&rpmpd_opp_nom>;
			};
			cpr_opp3: opp3 {
				opp-level = <3>;
				qcom,opp-fuse-level = <3>;
				required-opps = <&rpmpd_opp_super_turbo>;
			};
		};
	};

There are two problems with this:

 1. (Unrelated to $subject patch)
    Since there is only a single entry in "power-domains", the genpd
    core code automatically attaches the CPR platform device as consumer
    of the VDDMX_AO power domain. I don't want this, I want it to become
    child of the VDDMX_AO genpd.

    I added some hacky code to workaround this. One option that works is
    to add a second dummy entry to "power-domains", which will prevent
    the genpd core from attaching the power domain:

    	power-domains = <&rpmpd MSM8916_VDDMX_AO>, <0>;

    The other option is detaching the power domain again in probe(),
    after setting it up as parent domain:

	struct of_phandle_args parent, child;

	child.np = dev->of_node;
	child.args_count = 0;

	of_parse_phandle_with_args(dev->of_node, "power-domains",
 			           "#power-domain-cells", 0, &parent));
	of_genpd_add_subdomain(&parent, &child);

	/* Detach power domain since it's managed via the subdomain */
	dev_pm_domain_detach(dev, false);

    Is there a cleaner way to handle this? Mainly a question for Uffe.

 2. The OPP WARNing triggers with both variants because it just checks
    if "required-opps" has a single entry. I guess we need extra checks
    to exclude the "parent genpd" case compared to the "OPP" case.

It does seem to work correctly, with and without this patch. So I guess
another option might be to simply silence this WARN_ON(). :')

Thanks,
Stephan
