I think I know what the problem is now.

omap3_pm_init calls clkdm_allow_idle for all clkdms, while autoidle on
all iclks is still disabled. This causes autodeps to be set as the iclks
are accounted for in the usecount.
(hwmod would have done a clk_enable() on the iclks and left them enabled
as OCPIF_SWSUP_IDLE isn't set)

static void omap3_clkdm_allow_idle(struct clockdomain *clkdm)
         if (atomic_read(&clkdm->usecount) > 0)


A little later after omap3_pm_init, we enable autoidle for all iclks.
omap2_clkt_iclk_allow_idle decrements the usecount, but leaves the
autodeps still set.

This seems to be causing the dss and usb to also transition along with

We will need some way to also clear and set autodeps in
