Here is a proposal to extend the OPP bindings with bandwidth based on
a previous discussion [1].

Every functional block on a SoC can contribute to the system power
efficiency by expressing its own bandwidth needs (to memory or other SoC
modules). This will allow the system to save power when high throughput
is not required (and also provide maximum throughput when needed).

There are at least three ways for a device to determine its bandwidth
needs:
	1. The device can dynamically calculate the needed bandwidth
based on some known variable. For example: UART (baud rate), I2C (fast
mode, high-speed mode, etc), USB (specification version, data transfer
type), SDHC (SD standard, clock rate, bus-width), Video Encoder/Decoder
(video format, resolution, frame-rate)

	2. There is a hardware specific value. For example: hardware
specific constant value (e.g. for PRNG) or use-case specific value that
is hard-coded.

	3. Predefined SoC/board specific bandwidth values. For example:
CPU or GPU bandwidth is related to the current core frequency and both
bandwidth and frequency are scaled together.

This patchset is trying to address point 3 above by extending the OPP
bindings to support predefined SoC/board bandwidth values and adds
support in cpufreq-dt to scale the interconnect between the CPU and the
DDR together with frequency and voltage.

Changes in v2:
* Added support for configuring multiple interconnect paths per each device
and changed the way we describe it in DT. (Viresh)
* Rename the DT property opp-bw-MBps to bandwidth-MBps. (Viresh)
* Document MBps in property-units.txt. (Rob)
* New patch to add of_icc_get_by_index() helper function.
* Add _of_find_paths() to populate OPP tables with interconnect path data
from DT. (Viresh)
