Hi Vaibhav,

Can you please consider rebasing this series? This driver has had many 
changes in the area of PM for v5.10-rc1

Also please note that my colleague provided a reviewed-by tag for v2, 
so, if no big significant changes from v2->v3, please add that tag. 
Obviously, in light of what I say about recent changes, that is not 
applicable now, but just for future reference.
