I think the issue is less between efuse and avs driver, but more between avs 
driver and cpufreq. The avs driver aims to modify the opp table and thus wants 
to do that / register the notifier before cpufreq starts.

And as there is no direct connection between cpufreq and the avs driver, 
making cpufreq defer probing is probably not really easy.
