You made the right choice. It's indeed not obvious from commit message
what is achieved with this change. This patch shouldn't have any visible
effect on older kernels which don't support power management in a case
of Tegra SoCs. It will have effect using the upcoming kernels, once the
full set of in-progress power management patches will be merged.
