SubjectRe: [RFC PATCH 0/3] Add support of busfreq
Hi Alex,

Some nitpick review comments below.

In your v2 cover letter could you post a link to a git branch that has
everything integrated that is needed to test the series? I guess this
is similar to what Aisheng asked for already.

It's not clear to me whether this series actual scales the dram
frequency based on what you said above. Is it just theoretical or do
you have it working with a pile of out-of-tree patches? Would be good
to include that pile of patches in your integration branch that I
suggested above.

Thanks,
Mike
