dev_pm_opp_remove() is one such option, which can remove OPPs
individually. Over that, while remove tables we remove all the OPPs
one by one. So that really does happen.

That is being protected with this patch now and the drivers can use
them freely.

Hmm, we don't update the OPP a lot after creating it today. But that's
a different problem to solve, if we really see a race there.
