In my error path I would have subdomains added though, so I would need
that to be handled.

Well, with pm_genpd_prepare and pm_genpd_add I would still need two
loops, one for preparing and one for adding.

I'm not sure how useful it really is to be able to unregister power

successfully registered. I'll look into it should the pm domain
maintainers request it.
