Will add some more info in the next revision.

My idea is to allow multiple throttlers, which might operate on
different throttling devices or use different OPPs for the same
device. To support this a simple boolean hint that the OPP can be used
for throttling would not be sufficient.

What should work is a property with an array of phandles of the
throttlers that use a given OPP.

AFAIK it is currently not possible to enumerate the devfreq devices in
the system, so besides the info in the OPPs the throttler itself would
still need a phandle to the devfreq device(s) it uses.

I envision something like this:

gpu_opp_table: opp-table2 {
compatible = "operating-points-v2";

opp00 {
opp-hz = /bits/ 64 <200000000>;
opp-microvolt = <800000>;
};
opp01 {
opp-hz = /bits/ 64 <297000000>;
opp-microvolt = <800000>;
opp-throttlers = <&cros_ec_throttler>;
};
...
};

cros_ec_throttler: cros-ec-throttler {
compatible = "google,cros-ec-throttler";

devfreq-devices = <&gpu>;
};

Would this be acceptable?

Thanks

Matthias
