This series adds interconnect scaling support for imx8m series chips. It uses a
per-SOC interconnect provider layered on top of multiple instances of devfreq
for scalable nodes along the interconnect.

Existing qcom interconnect providers mostly translate bandwidth requests into
firmware calls but equivalent firmware on imx8m is much thinner. Scaling
support for individual nodes is implemented as distinct devfreq drivers
instead.

The imx interconnect provider doesn't communicate with devfreq directly
but rather computes "minimum frequencies" for nodes along the path and
creates dev_pm_qos requests.

Since there is no single devicetree node that can represent the
"interconnect" the main NOC is picked as the "interconnect provider" and
will probe the interconnect platform device if #interconnect-cells is
present. This avoids introducing "virtual" devices but it means that DT
bindings of main NOC includes properties for both devfreq and
interconnect.

Only the ddrc and main noc are scalable right now but more can be added.

Also available on a github branch (with various unrelated changes):
	https://github.com/cdleonard/linux/tree/next_leonard

Changes since v2:
* Fix unused variable in imx_bus_target
* Sort imx before qcom in interconnect makefile/kconfig
* Use icc_std_aggregate
* Adjust prints in imx interconnect core.
* Adjust included guarts for dt bindings
* Remove imx_icc_unregister warning when there are active users, should
be handled inside core instead.
Link: https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/11469157/

Changes since v1:
* Fix dt_bindings_check for yaml and reduce example to fit current
features
* Fix comment spelling in imx-bus
* Drop mentions of passive governor from imx-bus (will repost later)
* Improve error message in imx_bus_init_icc
* Use dev_pm_opp_set_rate
Link: https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/11458971/

Changes since RFCv6:
* Allow building interconnect drivers as modules
* Handle icc_provider_del errors in imx_icc_unregister (like EBUSY).
* Rename imx-devfreq to imx-bus, similar to exynos-bus
* Explain why imx bus clock enabling is not required
Link: https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/11244421/

Changes since RFCv5:
* Replace scanning for interconnect-node-id with explicit
scalable-nodes/scalable-node-ids property on NoC.
* Now passes make `dtbs_check`
* Remove struct imx_icc_provider
* Switch to of_icc_xlate_onecell
* Use of_find_device_by_node to fetch QoS target, this causes fewer probe
deferrals, removes dependency on devfreq API and even allows reloading ddrc
module at runtime
* Add imx_icc_node_destroy helper
* Remove 0/1 on DEFINE_BUS_SLAVE/MASTER which created spurious links
Link: https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/11222015/

Changes since RFCv4:
* Drop icc proxy nonsense
* Make devfreq driver for NOC probe the ICC driver if
#interconnect-cells is present
* Move NOC support to interconnect series and rename the node in DT
* Add support for all chips at once, differences are not intereseting
and there is more community interest for 8mq than 8mm.
Link: https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/11111865/

Changes since RFCv3:
* Remove the virtual "icc" node and add devfreq nodes as proxy providers
* Fix build on 32-bit arm (reported by kbuilt test robot)
* Remove ARCH_MXC_ARM64 (never existed in upstream)
* Remove _numlinks, calculate instead
* Replace __BUSFREQ_H header guard
* Improve commit message and comment spelling
* Fix checkpatch issues
Link to RFCv3: https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/11078671/

Changes since RFCv2 and initial work by Alexandre Bailon:
* Relying on devfreq and dev_pm_qos instead of CLK
* No more "platform opp" stuff
* No more special suspend handling: use suspend-opp on devfreq instead
* Replace all mentions of "busfreq" with "interconnect"
Link to v2: https://patchwork.kernel.org/cover/11021563/

Thank you for your work Leonard! There is no build dependency between the
devfreq and interconnect patches, so i can apply patches 1,4-7.

Chanwoo, should i take also the two devfreq patches with your Ack?

Thanks,
Georgi

As you commented, if there are no build dependency,
I think it better to be merged to devfreq.git for the history.

I'll apply patch2,3 to devfreq git for v5.8-rc1.

Thanks.
