[PATCH v2 1/1] arm: topology: remove cpu_efficiency




Remove the 'cpu_efficiency/clock-frequency dt property' based solution
to set cpu capacity which was only working for Cortex-A15/A7 arm
big.LITTLE systems.

I.e. the 'capacity-dmips-mhz' based solution is now the only one. It is
shared between arm and arm64 and works for every big.LITTLE system no
matter which core types it consists of.
