SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 09/15] PM / devfreq: exynos: Update documentation for bus devices using passive governor
Hi Rob,

I'm sorry for delay reply due to the problem of email system
on the company.

You're right. The above topology is not appropriate to show the correlation
between power line and sub blocks. I'll modify it as following.

The all blocks which are included in the INT (internal) block
share the one power line (VDD_INT).


VDD_MIF |--- DMC

VDD_INT |--- LEFTBUS
|--- PERIL
|--- MFC
|--- G3D
|--- RIGHTBUS
|--- FSYS
|--- LCD0
|--- PERIR
|--- ISP
|--- CAM

I'm sure. The OPP allow OPP table to add the same voltage for each OPP entry.
Instead, OPP don't permit adding the duplicate frequency. If OPP table includes
the different frequency as OPP entry, there is no problem. It is tested.
