Adding everyone back, reply to you only by mistake earlier :(

Not sure I understand it fully yet. I tried looking at code and this is what I

At probe initialization, you just configure bw.

Later on, towards end of probe and resume, you set both bw and performance

Also your DT changes add virtual level numbers to PCIe OPP table like this:
+                               opp-1 {
+                                       opp-level = <1>;
+                                       required-opps = <&rpmhpd_opp_low_svs>;
+                               };

Instead what you can do here is, add bw values and remove level completely (as
it is not serving any meaningful purpose) and use the OPP core to set both bw
and performance state (via required OPPs).

What won't work if you do this ?
