I've pushed what I have so far to:

I've tested this on VLV with VGA output so far and somewhat on HSW. I'd
still have to check the need to do any HW state save/restore and the GFX
clock forcing, afaics Jesse has already code for these in his patchset.

Yea, I solved that by changing power_well->lock to be a mutex.

That works for me too. In any case would be nice to get some feedback
especially from Paulo as my changes are mostly about the current power
domain / well handling parts.
