SoCs that have multiple coexisting CPUs and DSPs, may have shared
interconnect buses between them. In such cases, each CPU/DSP may have
different bandwidth needs, depending on whether it is active or sleeping.
This means that we have to keep different bandwidth configurations for
the CPU (active/sleep). In such systems, usually there is a way to
communicate and synchronize this information with some firmware or pass
it to another processor responsible for monitoring and switching the
interconnect configurations based on the state of each CPU/DSP.

The above problem can be solved by introducing the path tagging concept,
that allows consumers to optionally attach a tag to each path they use.
This tag is used to differentiate between the aggregated bandwidth values
for each state. The tag is generic and how it's handled is up to the
platform specific interconnect provider drivers.

v2:
- Store tag with the request. (Evan)
- Reorganize the code to save bandwidth values into buckets and use the
  tag as a bitfield. (Evan)
- Clear the aggregated values after icc_set().

That's correct. Will add a comment for this.

I think the rationale behind this is generally for consumers to target a 
certain minimum threshold to satisfy some structural latency 
requirements as opposed to strictly throughput, and it may be easier for 
consumers to reuse certain values to support hitting some minimum NoC 
frequencies without having to be concerned with the number of channels 
that may change from platform to platform.

You are correct in that the dirty flag would prevent another repeat of 
the bcm_aggregate() call in the same icc_set request. But consider a 
following icc_set request on a different node that shares the same BCM, 
the next bcm_aggregate() would result in an incorrect aggregate sum_avg 
for the BCM since the avg_sum from the previous node(from the previous 
icc_set) was cleared out. We need a way to retain the current state of 
all nodes to accurately aggregate the bw values for the BCM.

Using (tag & BIT(i)) as opposed to test_bit seems reasonable to me.

Well it's not really two graphs since the BCMs aren't really connected 
to each other, they only have association with some groups of physical 
nodes that share a clock domain(There's some nuances here, but let's 
assume for the sake of simplicity). Their only job is to aggregate to 
some threshold value and select a performance point and they don't 
contain any information about the connectivity of the nodes.

I do admit looking at this is somewhat confusing. I'm not totally 
against the idea of adding another callback in the framework, maybe we 
can re-evaluate this when there are other providers using the 
interconnect framework. I'd prefer to have the justification of needing 
additional ops in the core if somehow there's some hardware out there 
that dictates that we need some pre or post aggregation stage as opposed 
to easier book keeping? Though I do like the idea of reducing complexity 
overall, any thoughts on this Georgi?

I appreciate the thought, but not only do the nodes provide the 
width/channel, they provide all the connectivity data and an accurate 
representation of the NoC topology. There's no way to aggregate the 
nodes and the paths properly if we lose out on the granularity that the 
current graph provides(Imagine the example of two nodes on some mutually 
exclusive path under the same BCM again using avg_bw, 1MBps on node1 and 
1MBps node2 should result in an aggregate BCM node of 1MBps since they 
physically don't share the same port where as if we clobbered the nodes 
together and represent them under a single BCM, it would suggest that 
they share the same physical port and aggregate 2MBps when in reality 
they don't need to be since they are parallel).
