I don't see much difference between the functional power states to
actual power states with some cases here and there.

+     case PWRDM_FUNC_PWRST_CSWR:
+     case PWRDM_FUNC_PWRST_OSWR:
+             ret = PWRDM_POWER_RET;

This is not true and even if you add logic/memmort etc support,
I still think, we are just duplicating stuff between functional
vs actual power state.

If the idea is to have one single interface to program the power
domain states, so that Generic frameworks, or PM code movement to
driver/* directories is easier, we may want think about alternative
which is scalable.

Just a wild thought...

May be we can abstract all the necessary/used power domain programming
entities inside a structure and export that. That should contain, power
state, logic state, mem state, special quirk flags like SAR etc.
being structure is always expandable and an API taking structure as
a parameter need not change.
