My testing was limited to sdm845, which didn't show any boot issues. But 
it's not terribly surprising for this to cause problems on some targets. 
Previously every node was enabled by default and left on permanently if 
nobody explicitly voted for them. This would happen even if these nodes 
weren't enabled in bootloaders, since most of the qcom providers aren't 
defining a get_bw() callback and thus the framework defaults 
init_avg/init_peak to INT_MAX. So any drivers relying on this default-on 
behavior would break.

We can try to get dumps of the NOC error registers at the time of 
failure to pinpoint the problematic access. Or we could try to narrow it 
down by marking more BCMs as keepalive. If they're marked as keepalive 
then we won't let them turn off even with this patch.
