Yeah I'm almost inclined to think adding even more ifs to the icc driver
will consume more power than just leaving the AXI hanging..

That too, given the structure of qcom SoCs, it should almost look like:

xyznoc-bus {
	compatible = "simple-pm-bus";
	clocks = <&gcc xyznoc_ahb>,
		 <&gcc xyznoc_axi>;

	xyznoc-node@...d {};


I've actually discussed this with Bjorn, but we came to a conclusion
that it's not trivial to determine which peripheral lives on which NoC
+ many of them seem to sorta overlap more than one..
