[PATCH v5 0/6] power: add power sequence library

Hi all,

This is a follow-up for my last power sequence framework patch set [1].
According to Rob Herring and Ulf Hansson's comments[2], I use a generic
power sequence library for parsing the power sequence elements on DT,
and implement generic power sequence on library. The host driver
can allocate power sequence instance, and calls pwrseq APIs accordingly.

In future, if there are special power sequence requirements, the special
power sequence library can be created.

This patch set is tested on i.mx6 sabresx evk using a dts change, I use
two hot-plug devices to simulate this use case, the related binding
change is updated at patch [1/6], The udoo board changes were tested
using my last power sequence patch set.[3]

Except for hard-wired MMC and USB devices, I find the USB ULPI PHY also
need to power on itself before it can be found by ULPI bus.

Changes for v5:
- Delete pwrseq_register/pwrseq_unregister, which is useless currently
- Fix the linker error when the pwrseq user is compiled as module

Changes for v4:
- Create the patch on next-20160722 
- Fix the of_node is not NULL after chipidea driver is unbinded [Patch 5/6]
- Using more friendly wait method for reset gpio [Patch 2/6]
- Support multiple input clocks [Patch 2/6]
- Add Rob Herring's ack for DT changes
- Add Joshua Clayton's Tested-by

Changes for v3:
- Delete "power-sequence" property at binding-doc, and change related code
  at both library and user code.
- Change binding-doc example node name with Rob's comments
- of_get_named_gpio_flags only gets the gpio, but without setting gpio flags,
  add additional code request gpio with proper gpio flags
- Add Philipp Zabel's Ack and MAINTAINER's entry

Changes for v2:
- Delete "pwrseq" prefix and clock-names for properties at dt binding
- Should use structure not but its pointer for kzalloc
- Since chipidea core has no of_node, let core's of_node equals glue
  layer's at core's probe
