SoCs that have multiple coexisting CPUs and DSPs, may have shared
interconnect buses between them. In such cases, each CPU/DSP may have
different bandwidth needs, depending on whether it is active or sleeping.
This means that we have to keep different bandwidth configurations for
the CPU (active/sleep). In such systems, usually there is a way to
communicate and synchronize this information with some firmware or pass
it to another processor responsible for monitoring and switching the
interconnect configurations based on the state of each CPU/DSP.

The above problem can be solved by introducing the path tagging concept,
that allows consumers to optionally attach a tag to each path they use.
This tag is used to differentiate between the aggregated bandwidth values
for each state. The tag is generic and how it's handled is up to the
platform specific interconnect provider drivers.
