Thanks for detailed explanation Georgi.

Thanks for the bug report Chanwoo, it's related to the sync_state
feature as you guys already figured out. I had to reorder some code
in the interconnect driver probe() to avoid some issues,
i.e. to register PM QoS request before icc_node_add() call but
I forgot to check initial state of the bus frequencies.

I thought the get_bw implementation might be needed but the default
behaviour seems fine, the PM QoS derived bus frequencies will be
clamped in the devfreq to valid OPP values.

Chanwoo, in order to set the bandwidth to 0 we could also just blank
the display. Below are some of the commands I use for testing.

# blank display (disable the mixer entirely)
echo 4 > /sys/devices/platform/exynos-drm/graphics/fb0/blank

# unblank display
echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/exynos-drm/graphics/fb0/blank

# modetest with 2 planes (higher bandwidth test)
./modetest -s 47:1920x1080 -P 45:1920x1080 -v
