Hey Georgi,
Having opp-bw-MBps as a part of cpu opp does greatly simplify the
problem of scaling multiple interconnect devices with change in cpu
frequency. But there is still a need to scale other devices (non 
interconnect based) according to cpu frequency. Having a devfreq
governor for the same would help to have the same generic solution
across SoCs (msm8916/8996/qcs405/sdm845). The devfreq maintainer did
like the idea but wanted it incorporated into the passive governor.

I have a RFC series implementing ddr scaling with passive governor for 
sdm845 with the following bindings, will post it early next week.
