The interconnect framework asks for bandwidth in bytes/second but in NXP
tree most requests are of the form "request_bus_freq(BUS_FREQ_HIGH);".
In many cases (ethernet) it doesn't seem you can calculate a specific
bandwidth usefully.

Instead of asking for "infinite bandwidth zero latency" to force
everything to "high" it would be nicer to "request an opp".

Power-domain bindings mentioned that consumer-devices can specify a
"required-opps" property but I've found zero users in tree. Maybe some
helpers could be written to parse that property and automatically
request ICC opp on device suspend/resume via device-links?

I know that stuff was written for genpd but it looks like a very good
fit to me.

I'm not sure what you mean here, do you want a clk set_rate to change
the DRAM freq? It makes sense for DDRC to be a node in the interconnect
framework and switch OPP inside icc implementation via an ATF call.
