Are we still talking about the same problem? Maybe I am losing track
here. Just to make sure. 
The patch series was about disabling autoidle for devices which cannot
work with it during normal operation. Not during reset or something
like that. 
Or is the keep-clock-active-during-reset just a requirement for bigger
restructuring ideas?
