DVFS for the ARM cores is going in for 3.4 - that's not what Aneesh is
referring to. The changes here pertain to DVFS for core devices. Core
devices include the EMIF as well as several other devices. Core DVFS is
much more challenging to implement cleanly. It has clock framework and
driver dependencies. So it probably won't be ready for several months at
the very least.
