If we don't go with the linked list approach, then yes.

Yes, I was talking about the whole design here.

Well, it is going to be the same information for all CPUs of a policy, isn't it
?

Yes, but you are reading that information from scmi or DT (empty opp tables) and
so you know what the cpumasks are going to be set to. The linked list is the
right solution in my opinion, it is much more optimal.

It is better to move it above as this will shorten the error path.
