This patch adapts the panfrost pre-defined thresholds change [0] to the
lima driver to improve real-world performance. The upthreshold value has
been set to ramp GPU frequency to max freq faster (compared to panfrost)
to compensate for the lower overall performance of utgard devices.

Change since v1: increased upthreshold from 20 to 30, with a soft
dependency on Lukasz delayed timer patch [0]

It looks good.

This patch gets minor improvement on glmark2 (160->162).

Seems there's no way for user to change this value, do we?
Or there's work pending to expose it to sysfs?

It has bigger impact when the load is changing and the frequency
is stuck to min w/o this patch.

True there is no user sysfs. I've proposed a patch to export these via
sysfs. Chanwoo is going to work on it. When it will land mainline, it's
probably a few months. So for now, the fix makes sense.
