Thanks for fixing and reporting!

Looking a bit closer to the genpd code in this reagrds, made me
realize that I think there's a better approach to fix this.
Instead of going into the details for how, I decided to send a
separate patch. You are on cc.

"[PATCH] PM / Domains: Silence compiler warning for an unused function".

Kind regards
