Sorry for that as I saie, I cannot agree this patch. In my case,
I don't understand what is meaning of register dump of this patch.
I knew that just register dump are useful for real developer.

If you want to show the register dump, you better to add some feature
with debugfs for devfreq framework in order to read the register dump.
As I knew, sound framework (alsa) has the similar feature for checking
the register dump.
