not really, this is already handled well
in the icc framework. In this case
the max peak vote would be considered
among the two paths.

Yes the core shouldn't get paths
by default unless the bw values
are specified in the opps.

I can't understand ^^ proposal as well.
We would ideally want to add scaling
support for SDM845 as well while we are
at it.
