SubjectRe: [PATCH v9 2/8] dt-bindings: Introduce interconnect binding

As I mentioned in person, I want to see other SoC families using this
before accepting. They don't have to be ready for upstream, but WIP
patches or even just a "yes, this works for us and we're going to use
this binding on X".

Also, I think the QCom GPU use of this should be fully sorted out. Or
more generically how this fits into OPP binding which seems to be never
ending extended...
