I agree with Carl's comment, we do need the frequency index. If the
frequency index is provided, then the order is not important which
makes the data more clear or the set_sar_spec function needs to parse
the frequency ranges (and ofcourse userspace has to populate that as
well). If the frequency index is not provided, then the driver has to
assume that the userspace is not making any error in mapping of the
power and desired frequency.
Other reason is, might be a bit unlikely, but if in future there are
new subbands, then it gives a flexibility to the userspace to
explicitly provide the band for which it needs to set the power for.
