I read his comments now and what he suggested is:

"What about handling this like the others do, through a proper cpufreq
driver?"

I am not sure if he meant something like that you have here. Only one
cpufreq driver can be registered at any point of time with the kernel,
and so if this one is there then acpi-cpufreq or intel-pstate can't be
there. Who will do DVFS ?
