It was probably an OMAP1 implementation of OPPs, similar to virt_prcm_set
on OMAP2. Looks like the tree is missing a CPUFreq driver that uses it.
Cc'ing Tuukka in case he recalls.

One fix that might solve your particular problem would be to remove the
parent clock pointer from virtual_ck_mpu. Neither virtual_ck_mpu or
virt_prcm_set should need it.
