Subject[PATCH 0/7] Register an Energy Model for Arm reference platforms
The Energy Model (EM) framework feeds interested subsystems (the
scheduler/EAS as of now) with power costs provided by drivers. Yet, no
driver is actually doing that upstream yet. This series updates a set of
CPUFreq drivers and DT files in order to register power costs in the EM
framework for some of the Arm reference platforms for EAS: Hikey960,
Juno and TC2.

The series is split as follows:

* Patch 01 introduces in PM_OPP a helper function which estimates the
CPU power using the P=CV²f equation also used by IPA. It should be
noted that this introduces duplicate code with IPA, which will
eventually be fixed by migrating IPA to using PM_EM. The ideal plan
would be to do so later, in a separate patch series. I would indeed
prefer to keep the thermal and CPUFreq discussion separate at this
stage, if deemed acceptable.

* Patches 02-04 make use of that PM_OPP helper function from the
following CPUFreq drivers: cpufreq-dt, scpi-cpufreq and

* Patch 05 modifies the SCMI cpufreq driver to pass the power costs
obtained from firmware to PM_EM.

* Patches 06-07 provide the dynamic-power-coefficient values for Juno
and TC2.
