This is mainly to know the maximum number of power domains that firmware
supports. This will help the software handling the provider part to
setup the information in advance before any consumer request for the

Yes for anything above this value, firmware returns invalid parameter
error. It's would be good to have that as a separate command instead
of getting it via DT. We already have that for OPPs and clocks. Just
this lacks that feature.

Sure, thanks for the review.
