Sure, I'll reword it to make it clear that we need the same number of cells
as power-domains, and as you pointed out below that 0 corresponds to not setting
anything.

For the matching of opp-level inside the OPP table of the power-domain, I don't
think from the power-domain bindings we limit providers with only OPP tables to
support performance states? It could be just a range that the provider manages
internally?

And thanks for catching all my typos :), I'll have them fixed when I re-spin.
