Many other patches will be required to test the series.
There are a couple of patches that updates i.MX device drivers to 
request for bandwidth (does similar thing as bus_freq_request and 
bus_freq_release).
In addition, a patch to that allow to scale the DRAM
frequency using CCF is required. I'm still working on this patch. It 
works correctly on 4.14, but since I rebased it on linux-next/master, it 
stopped to work. I'm trying to fix it now.
I will share all this patches ASAP.

Best Regards,
Alexandre
