This series attempts to add devfreq support for imx8mm, covering dynamic
scaling of internal buses and dram.

Actual scaling is performed through the clk framework: The NOC and main
NICs are driven by composite clks and a new 'imx8m-dram' clk is used for
scaling dram using firmware calls.

Frequency target is set via "clk_set_min_rate", this allows an unrelated
subsystem (for example interconnect) to also request minimum rates as a
form for proactive scaling.

The dram controller (DDRC) has a performance monitoring block attached
for which a perf driver already exists. Instead of reimplementing that
as devfreq-events the perf in-kernel API is used.

Changes since v2:
* Solve review comments
* Add yaml binding doc
* Add perf event support
Link to v2: https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/11021571/

DRAM frequency switching through clk framework is here:
* https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/11049429/
That part might not be accepted in clk and it might have to be moved to
devfreq also.
