This comment was expected since initially we thought of using

	|--> pwrdm_wait_transition()
	|--> pwrdm_state_switch()

What we need is only first function to ensure that we don't
proceed when PD is in middle of transition.

The second function is actually just doing those debug counter
updates and we wanted to avoid that since it's a live path.
Rajendra observed some huge latencies while doing the
profiling and the suspect was "pwrdm_state_switch()" which
actually keeps adding overhead because of those counter

clkdm_allow_idle() already has the power-domain wait.
This patch adds it for clkdm_wakeup() function.
clkdm_sleep(), this shouldn't be applicable since power
domain sleep transition is depdent on other clockdomains
in the PD and it's a lazy operation.
That leaves clkdm_deny_idle() and I guess we should
address this API as well.

If you agree with above, I can update the patch to address
remaining clkdm_deny_idle() function.
