So, that I think is one of the open questions.  Jordan knows this
stuff a lot better than I, but my understanding is that bus and clk
scale *basically* independently, except that a given gpu clk we want a
different minimum bus clk.

(I'm not sure if that is a functional requirement, or just what qcom
arrived at after performance tuning..)

There is some work ongoing to get some sort of upstream bus scaling
scaling, although I'm not really sure yet what the bindings for this
would look like.

So basically short answer is "I don't know.. there are too many open
questions".  Maybe in the end we re-introduce qcom,gpu-pwrlevels.  But
I think for now the approach of not documenting it and have safe/slow
clk fallback in the driver is a reasonable way to move forward with
getting some basic gpu nodes into upstream dts files.
