Heh. The earlier krefs were for the OPP table itself, so that it gets freed once
there are no more users of it.

The kref introduced now is for individual OPPs, so that they don't disappear
while being used and gets freed once all are done.

Also note that the OPP table will get freed only after all the OPPs are freed,
plus there are no more users left, like platform code which might have set
suppoerted-hw property.
