I misunderstood new 'parent' prototype as the existing 'devfreq' property.
I didn't understand why use the 'devfreq' property because 'bus_dmc' and
'bus_leftbus' don't share the power line. Please ignore my previous comment.

Basically, I agree that it is necessary to support the QoS requirement
between buses or if possible, between bus and gpu.

To support the interconnect between bus_dmc, bus_leftbus and bus_display,
it used the either 'devfreq' or 'parent' properties to connect them.

In order to catch the meaning of 'devfreq' and 'parent' properties,
If possible, it would be separate the usage role of between 'devfreq'
or 'parent' properties. Because it is possible to connect the 'buses'
with only using 'parent' property if all buses in the path uses
the devfreq governors except for 'passive' governor.

- If 'devfreq' property is used between buses,
it indicates that there are requirement of shading of power line.
- If 'parent' property is used between buses,
it indicates that there are requirement of interconnect connection.
