I understand why you want to do this, but I'm not sure it's a good idea.
It's really something the driver should figure out, and if we add it to
the DT, it effectively becomes an ABI.

That said... I'm not sure how good of a job the driver could ever do, as
it can't know the future scaling needs of the userspace at the time it
is configuring the clock. And so, I'm not nacking this patch, but I
don't feel very good about this patch...

The setting also affects all outputs (exluding venc), which may not be
what the user wants. Then again, I think this setting is really only
needed on OMAP2 & 3, which have only a single output. But that's the
same with the current kconfig option, of course.

So, the current CONFIG_OMAP2_DSS_MIN_FCK_PER_PCK is an ugly hack, in my
opinion, and moving it to DT makes it a worse hack =). But I don't have
any good suggestions either.
