SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/1] cpufreq: cpufreq-cpu0: use the max voltage instead of voltage-tolerance

For given board, what voltages could be provided is known. So you can
just define OPP table in <board>.dts and specify the voltage as the
value that the regulator IC can supply, e.g. 1.200V in above example.

This is not nice, as OPP table is CPU/SoC specific and should be ideally
defined in <soc>.dtsi. But still it's a way out for you to use
cpufreq-cpu0 driver as it is.

In any case, you can not just change voltage-tolerance to voltage-max
with no care about the existing users.
