Hi Saravana,

Thanks for the patches, but creating devfreq devices for each interconnect path
seems odd to me - at least for consumers that already use a governor. So for DDR
scaling for example, are you suggesting that we add a devfreq device from the
cpufreq driver in order to scale the interconnect between CPU<->DDR? Also if the
GPU is already using devfreq, should we add a devfreq per each interconnect
path? What would be the benefit in this case - using different governors for
bandwidth scaling maybe?

Thanks,
Georgi
