Please check with Punit if he is planning to add the same..

Firstly, we don't care. You are pushing something to mainline, you
have to get it tested someway on mainline.

Secondly, there are *almost* no changes required to the mtk cpufreq
driver for OPPV2. Just update your DT in a similar way it is done for
one of the exynos platforms and it should just work fine.
