(You can always add commit sha to make it easy to search)

But I am not sure how this is related to the above commit anyways.

No my main concern is this platform uses "qcom-cpufreq-hw" driver and the
fact that the OPPs are retrieved from the hardware lookup table invalidates
whatever we have in DT. In short it will be junk and becomes obsolete.
So what I suggested before is still valid. You simply can't have static
OPP tables in the DT for this platform. Do get some boot code to fetch the
same from the h/w LUT and patch to the DT or figure out any other way to
manage dynamically.

So NACK still stands for static addition of OPPs to the DT as in this patch.
