Georgi Djakov - March 13, 2019, 9 a.m.
In addition to frequency and voltage, some devices may have bandwidth
requirements for their interconnect throughput - for example a CPU
or GPU may also need to increase or decrease their bandwidth to DDR
memory based on the current operating performance point.

Extend the OPP tables with additional property to describe the bandwidth
needs of a device. The average and peak bandwidth values depend on the
hardware and its properties.

Can we have multiple paths for a device ?

In that case fixing this to just 2 entries in the array is incorrect
and we should take care of that in the bindings here.

How would this work if you have 1 OPP (for the bus/interconnect/ddr) and 
2 devices with variable bandwidth needs? Or 'device' here means the 
interconnect?

-MBps would be better IMO. Either way, units should be documented in 
property-units.txt.

I suppose that this is also a possible scenario. Will propose something
to handle multiple paths too.

We can encode the path name into the property (when there are multiple
paths). We already have opp-microamp-<name> and opp-microamp-<name>, so
we can follow the same practice.

For example:

CPU0: cpu@0 {
	compatible = "arm,cortex-a53", "arm,armv8";
	...
	operating-points-v2 = <&cpu_opp_table>;
	/* path between the CPU and DDR and path between CPU and L3 */
	interconnects = <&bimc MASTER_AMPSS_M0 &bimc SLAVE_EBI_CH0>,
			<&bimc MASTER_AMPSS_M0 &bimc SLAVE_L3>;
	interconnect-names "cpu-mem", "cpu-l3";
};

cpu_opp_table: cpu_opp_table {
	compatible = "operating-points-v2";
	opp-shared;

	opp-200000000 {
		opp-hz = /bits/ 64 <200000000>;
		/* 457 MB/s average, 1525 MB/s peak bandwidth to DDR */
		opp-bw-MBps-cpu-mem = <457 1525>;
		/* 914 MB/s average, 3050 MB/s peak bandwidth to L3 */
		opp-bw-MBps-cpu-l3 = <914 3050>;
	};
};

Thanks,
Georgi

This is a property of the consumer devices and not of the bus. It's fine
for devices to have different bandwidth needs and to be connected to a
shared bus. In this case the framework knows the topology and can
determine which parts of the bus are shared and aggregate the traffic
accordingly.

The -<name> property is different as only one of the value is ever used, i.e. we
can have opp-microvolt-speed0/1/2/3 (4 different values/properties) and only
opp-microvolt-speed1 will be used eventually and all others are discarded.

Also I am not sure if this will be actually required. We already have a list of
interconnects above and the order of that can be taken as reference here. i.e.

CPU0: cpu@0 {
	compatible = "arm,cortex-a53", "arm,armv8";
	...
	operating-points-v2 = <&cpu_opp_table>;
	/* path between the CPU and DDR and path between CPU and L3 */
	interconnects = <&bimc MASTER_AMPSS_M0 &bimc SLAVE_EBI_CH0>,
			<&bimc MASTER_AMPSS_M0 &bimc SLAVE_L3>;
};

cpu_opp_table: cpu_opp_table {
	compatible = "operating-points-v2";
	opp-shared;

	opp-200000000 {
		opp-hz = /bits/ 64 <200000000>;
		/* 457 MB/s average, 1525 MB/s peak bandwidth to DDR */
		/* 914 MB/s average, 3050 MB/s peak bandwidth to L3 */
		opp-bw-MBps = <457 1525>, <914 3050>;
	};
};

I also strongly believe that "opp-bw-MBps" should be renamed in a way to make it
independent of the OPPs. For example, we may have devices which also need to add
their vote for the bandwidth but don't have an OPP table as they don't do DVFS.
And the same property should be used by them directly as what we will have in
the individual OPPs in the above example case.

So maybe something like bw-MBps or something else.

This works too.

Ok, will make it bandwidth-MBps.
