This patches replaces the previously used static DDR vote and uses
dev_pm_opp_set_bw() to scale GPU->DDR bandwidth along with scaling
GPU frequency.

This adds an implicit requirement that all targets need bandwidth settings
defined in the OPP or they won't get a bus vote at all. I would prefer that
there be an default escape valve but if not you'll need to add
bandwidth values for the sdm845 OPP that target doesn't regress.

it looks like we could maybe do something like:

ret = dev_pm_opp_set_bw(...);
if (ret) {
dev_warn_once(dev, "no bandwidth settings");



There is a bit of an issue here - Looks like its not possible to two icc handles to the same path. Its causing double enumeration of the paths in the icc core and messing up path votes. With [1] Since opp/core already gets a handle to the icc path as part of table add, drm/msm could do either

a) Conditionally enumerate gpu->icc_path handle only when pm/opp core has not got the icc path handle. I could use something like [2] to determine if should initialize gpu->icc_path*

b) Add peak-opp-configs in 845 dt and mandate all future versions to use this bindings. With this, I can remove gpu->icc_path from msm/drm completely and only rely on opp/core for bw voting.
