SubjectRe: [RFC V7 2/2] OPP: Allow "opp-hz" and "opp-microvolt" to contain magic values

I have kept a separate property since beginning (domain-performance-state)
and moved to using these magic values in the existing field because of the
suggestion Kevin gave earlier.

I am not sure what to do now :)

The OPP core puts them in debugfs just to know how the OPPs are
set. Otherwise, I am not sure that the power domain core/drivers would
be exposing that to user space.

Hmm, would adding the right user type in bindings would be good enough
for that? I mean, we can clearly add that only power-domains that are
managed by firmware are allowed to use magic values here. But not sure
if we should put such stuff in bindings.
