got it, thanks for making me understand in which cases we need to use it.

got it, thanks for the explanation.

Yes, it's happening for the latest mainline rc kernel and next trees because of
this commit:
"edeec420de24 (cpufreq: dt-platdev: Automatically create cpufreq device with OPP v2)"

working on it, thanks for the inputs.
