It looks like commit 989561de9b51 ("PM / Domains: add setter for
dev.pm_domain") added the helper. I then follow it to commit
f104e1e5ef57 ("PM / Domains: Re-order initialization of
generic_pm_domain_data"). The code in the original commit 6ff7bb0d02f8
("PM / Domains: Cache device stop and domain power off governor results,
v3") looks OK to me.

So What should I do ? Add
Fixes: f104e1e5ef57 ("PM / Domains: Re-order initialization of

tag in the mainline. And when Greg or others fix up before v4.4, I need
to work out the fix for that stable version ?
