Hey Jon, so does this RFC provide a way to just specify multiple Powerdomains
for a device (which then will *all* be powered on/off together) or does
it also provide for more granular control of these powerdomains?
The above statement seems to suggest you would need more granular control
of these powerdomains (like keeping XUSBA off in case superspeed it not
needed) but I can't seem to figure out how you achieve it with this series.
