Thanks Bjorn for your review. Sure, will update commit text with details 
in next series.

Normally, consumers will enable the GDSC and then the required clocks. 
If GDSC is moved to HW mode in gdsc_enable() itself, the subsequent 
clocks enablement that are dependent on GDSC might fail since GDSC could 
be turned off by HW. The consumers can still switch the GDSC to HW mode 
with new API right after the clocks are enabled and the control will be 
taken back to SW mode just before disabling the GDSC, so even with the 
newer implementation, HW can collapse the GDSC anytime for most of the 
duration between gdsc_enable() and gdsc_disable(). This API adds more 
flexibility for consumer drivers to control the GDSC mode as per their
requirements.

Thanks,
Jagadeesh
