Exactly. And yes this is intentional.

OPP core needs to know about regulators only if the user drivers want it to
manage DVFS. It is still possible for cpufreq drivers to use OPP framework for
managing the tables, but do the real DVFS stuff themselves. That's why it is not
compulsory in the code to set regulator names.

And its only wrong if dev_pm_opp_set_rate() is called without first setting the

I am not sure yet on what to change there. You mean regarding multiple
