So the above definition is when this field in in the device node rather
than the OPP table entry, right ? For simplicity why not have the
properties named slightly different or just use phandle to an entry in
the device node for this purpose.

needs to be changed as OPP table entry.

again "performance level of the domain corresponding to that OPP entry"
on something similar

what do you mean by normal device ? needs description as that's
something new introduced here.

Why such a restriction ?

How does it scale with power domain providers with multiple power domain ?

Do we ignore operating-points-v2 above as this device/cpu node contains
power domain which has operating-points-v2 property ? In other words
how do they correlate ?
