As Ionela pointed out earlier in the thread, the cpufreq driver for Juno
was not acceptable for mainline because it used platform specific code.
When it was converted to cpufreq-dt, the static power was left behind
because it can't be represented in device tree. This is because there
isn't a function that works for every SoC, different process nodes
(among other things) will need different functions. So it can't be just
a bunch of coefficients in DT, we need a function. Hence the callback.

In a nutshell, mainline does not want platform specific code, but we
haven't figured out how to calculate static power without platform
specific code.
