OPP library facilitates this concept in it's implementation. The following
operational functions operate only on available opps:

-6. Cpufreq Table Generation
-dev_pm_opp_init_cpufreq_table - cpufreq framework typically is initialized with
- cpufreq_frequency_table_cpuinfo which is provided with the list of
- frequencies that are available for operation. This function provides
- a ready to use conversion routine to translate the OPP layer's internal
- information about the available frequencies into a format readily
- providable to cpufreq.
- WARNING: Do not use this function in interrupt context.
- Example:
- soc_pm_init()
- {
- /* Do things */
- r = dev_pm_opp_init_cpufreq_table(dev, &freq_table);
- if (!r)
- cpufreq_frequency_table_cpuinfo(policy, freq_table);
- /* Do other things */
- }
- NOTE: This function is available only if CONFIG_CPU_FREQ is enabled in
- addition to CONFIG_PM as power management feature is required to
- dynamically scale voltage and frequency in a system.

Typically an SoC contains multiple voltage domains which are variable. Each
domain is represented by a device pointer. The relationship to OPP can be
