This is similar to what I suspected might be the case on other
platforms (in addition to known iMx and OMAP). Could you see/comment
on [1] to see if it meets your needs.

We should like to avoid dealing custom SoC specific OPP, if we are
able to generalize the need.  ofcourse, I am yet to submit a official
proposal, but more SoCs the current proposal can handle, the better it
will be for all of us.
