> Add generic power domain OF-based support which also includes APIs to handle

> 2)
> Adding a common API to attach/detach power domains and include support for the

> 4)
> Add support for the AMBA bus to attach/detach power domains, using the new
> common APIs.
> 5)
> Convert Exynos to use the new generic power domain OF support.
