Subject[RFC 3/3] media: stm32-dcmi: Inform cpufreq governors about cpu load needs
When start streaming the CPU load could remain very low because almost
all the capture pipeline is done in hardware (i.e. without using the CPU)
and let believe to cpufreq governor that it could use lower frequencies.
If the governor decides to use a too low frequency that becomes a problem
when we need to acknowledge the interrupt during the blanking time.

To avoid this problem, DCMI driver informs the cpufreq governors by adding
a cpufreq minimum load QoS resquest.
