Cluster Power Controller

The CPC is part of the IMG/MIPS multi-core IP solution, and is normally found alongside the CM and IOCU blocks.

It thus provides clock, voltage and power control over the cores and L2 cache within a coherent cluster, enabling Linux to perform hotplug, clock gating and scaling, power scaling and power aware scheduling across a cluster.
