We currently see an influx of system-power-controller variants. While in the
past it only was

there is now already

Romain's work would introduce "active-semi,system-power-controller", I have a
"netronix,system-power-controller" sitting in some distant tree and there may
be more already waiting somewhere.

So in the worst case I'd think you could expect such a property for every
pmic-vendor in vendor-prefixes.txt ... as it seems to be a quite common use-
case these days to have the pmic handle system power on its own.
