Ok. How are you making sure that certain CPUs are powered on?

Do you mean that there are other properties in the cci_node that the SVS
hardware block doesn't use? That doesn't sound like a problem to me. I
view nodes in the SoC bus as all memory mapped IO devices and it sounds
like SVS is a hardware IP core that's off to the side in the system that
has some sensors that goes into various other IP blocks in the system.
It's correct to model the registers and interrupts, etc. as one node for
the one hardware block that's delivered by the hardware engineers.

This should probably be some sort of list property that points to all
the CPUs in the little and big clusters. Then the code can iterate
through the node pointers and look for an OPP table in any of them by
combining of_cpu_node_to_id() with get_cpu_device()?

These three nodes should be combined into one node for the GPU. The
power domains will need to be referred to by name. Luckily we have
support for multiple power domains in the kernel now so this should
work. Let us know if it doesn't work for some reason.

Sure.
