Just notice that we can overwrite the set_target if using cpufreq-dt, then we still
need a platform cpufreq file to implement arch_set_freq_scale(), I can use it to save
the code of imx system controller cpufreq driver, and BTW, can cpufreq-dt support
multi clusters cpufreq? As i.MX8QM has 2 clusters running with different OPPs.

Thanks,
Anson.
