Hi Enric and Matthias,

First of all, thank you for the patch. But I'm worried the problem you
mentioned won't be solved even if we work on this new driver in the
future. My work on the MT8183 scpsys(now v17) is to implement the new
hardware logic. Here, I also see related patches, which means that these
new logics are necessary. Why can't we work on the original driver?
Meanwhile, I thought maybe we should separate the driver into general
control and platform data for each SoC, otherwise it'll keep getting
bigger and bigger if it need to be support new SoC.

And consider DVFSRC
(dynamic voltage and frequency scaling resource collector), should we
keep the original driver name "scpsys" instead of "pm-domains" because
it may provide more functions than power domains?
