Subject[PATCH RFC] Revert "cpufreq: dt: Identify cpu-sharing for platforms without operating-points-v2"
This is not an actual request for revert, but rather for comments about
the observed behavior since I am not really familiar with cpufreq.

I am observing a serious performance regression on Jetson TK1 since 4.7-rc1:
namely, moving windows under X would become unsufferably slow, and graphical
performance under X in general is seriously degraded. After bisecting, I
found the regression to be visible since commit 1530b9963eeb ("cpufreq: dt:
Identify cpu-sharing for platforms without operating-points-v2")

If I revert this commit, I noticed that the CPU frequency immediately jumps to
a higher frequency once I start moving windows (resulting in a smooth and
responsive action), whereas enabling this commit causes the CPU frequency to
remain low (typically 204 Mhz) in that case, resulting in CPU-bound slowness.

What happens is that with 1530b9963eeb applied, dev_pm_opp_get_sharing_cpus()
returns zero causing the fallback variable to remain false, whereas without it
opp_v1 is set to true.

It is not clear to me whether this is a cpufreq issue or a Tegra issue, so I am
posting this in the hope to get clarifications from either side.
