Thanks for the report.

IMHO a straight revert is a bad idea. I would prefer to keep current opp 
definitions and disable the affected devfreq devices (probably right bus 
would be enough) or try to identify which transitions are responsible 
for that issue. I know that it would take some time to identify them, 
but that would be the best solution. Reverting leads to incorrect 
hardware description, what in turn confuses the driver and framework, 
what in turn hides a real problem.

Another problem related to devfreq on Exynos4412 has been introduced 
recently by the commit 86ad9a24f21e ("PM / devfreq: Add required OPPs 
support to passive governor"). You can see lots of the messages like 
this one:

devfreq soc:bus-acp: failed to update devfreq using passive governor

I didn't have time to check what's wrong there, but I consider devfreq 
on Exynos a little bit broken, so another solution would be just to 
disable it in the exynos_defconfig.
