Curious what sort of surprises those would be? I suppose
something like power domains being removed from the system would
need some more work to start failing the suspend/resume of
devices in the power domains or possibly unbind the drivers that
are using the power domains provided. And we probably need to
sprinkle some try_module_get()/module_put() too so that the
module isn't easily removed if it's in use by some other drivers.

I hope it's not something that we think is impossible to do
though because we've been able to support the clk driver as
entirely modular on qcom platforms and I'd like to keep it that
way. BTW, it seems that we export __of_genpd_add_provider() so
there's at least some precedence for modular genpd code, albeit a
small one.
