OK (and OK for all other comments which I will skip below).

Good point. From the driver point of view overwriting of opps is not
needed. As you said, the driver will adjust the speed to the reported
grade. This could have meaning for the completeness of hardware
description however I see that there are no even bindings for CPU and
other boards do not overwrite it. I'll skip it then.

Either simple-bus with regulator@address or unique regulator node
names (regulator-1, no unit address). Both are popular but I think in
recent submissions and comments Rob Herring was proposing the second
option - unique regulator names without addresses. I can use such
approach (unless DTC complains).

Thanks for review and feedback!

Best regards,
Krzysztof
