Hi Mark,

Thanks for Viresh's clarification.

>From a private conversation with Viresh:
"This is because of a shortcoming in OPP bindings that we can't link
them today to all CPUs using them and there is WIP there.
All other platforms are passing it only for one CPU today,
in order not to replicate them..."

Our driver will be using those information for these CPUs only so I didn't
replicate them for all CPUs.

Would you please kindly give me some suggestion about what to do?
Should I replicate those clock and regulator supply information for all CPUs?
And OPP table as well?

Thanks.
