Subject[PATCH v2 1/2] dt-bindings: arm,scmi: Do not use clocks for SCMI performance domains
Commit dd461cd9183f ("opp: Allow dev_pm_opp_get_opp_table() to return
-EPROBE_DEFER") handles -EPROBE_DEFER for the clock/interconnects within
_allocate_opp_table() which is called from dev_pm_opp_add and it
now propagates the error back to the caller.

SCMI performance domain re-used clock bindings to keep it simple. However
with the above mentioned change, if clock property is present in a device
node, opps can't be added until clk_get succeeds. So in order to fix the
issue, we can register dummy clocks which is completely ugly.

Since there are no upstream users for the SCMI performance domain clock
bindings, let us introduce separate performance domain bindings for the

- Changed the generic #perf-domain-cells to more SCMI specific
property #arm,scmi-perf-domain-cells

Hi Rob/Viresh,

This is actually a fix for the regression I reported here[2].
I am not adding fixes tag as I am targeting in the same release and
also because it is not directly related.



P.S.:/me records that this binding needs to be moved to yaml in v5.11
