Ok. I will split it in the next series.

Actually I have checked the current kernel and none of the properties 
are
being configured from the device tree node. Hence, i thought it is the 
right
time modify the units to mV to support the PMI8998.

You still want to have the qcom,ovp-mv, even though it is not being 
configured from
device tree ?

Ok. Actually I don't see the use of this property as the 
qcom,enabled-strings
it self is enough to know the strings to be enabled. But for backward 
compatibility
i keep it as original property.
