I have scanned the series again. Somehow I still find myself
not convinced with the approach. I found having PD OSWR
CSWR state is the only change from this series helps to
some extent. But if you look from PRCM point of view,
they are already two distinct power domain states. Only
bad part from programming perspective, is, it's needs
to take care of additional bit to set and get PD state.

If we actually support 'PWRDM_POWER_OSWRET" and
'PWRDM_POWER_CSWRET" as valid state then we can do
everything without the functional power state series.
I mean we can use 'omap_set_pwrdm_state()' as a single
API for programming the PD, instead of duplicating
these all over the place.

OSWR by definition can be customised per power
domain based on various supported logic and
memory states.With this series, OSWR definition
also become static and if that is agreed then
we should cab just make that as a state like
ON/OFF/INACTIVE.

But I don't want to object this series if
Paul is convinced and agrees with the approach.
My view may be bit narrow but I am not convinced
with the approach.

Btw, ther are some real differences in PD INACTIVE state
in OMAP3 and OMAP4+ devices. I had some discussion with
Paul before on it. It needs to be clubbed with
voltagedomain layer to properly represent. Some
discussion was on the list [1] and some of that
was off list with hardware designers. Relevant
thread is here [1]
