I suggest we go ahead and try that approach (ignoring the return
value). It's "quick fix", but the easiest way forward to solve the

My only concern is if such change impacts the boot time. We should do
some tests to see if the change is negligible, if not we should
probably think of something else (like keeping the PM domain powered
until late_init).
