If I understand correctly: once we drop the con_ids list, we end up
calling clk_get(dev, NULL) from pm_clk_acquire(), which matches
against the clock with NULL con_id, which may not necessarily be the
first clock in the list.

I'm working on extending the psc driver with the power-domain code (as
suggested by David), which should be much smaller and simplier - how
about that?
