That's a matter of the driver I/F definition.

You can require online to be there if offline is set and the other way
around (but then you should check if that's the case while registering
the driver) or you can allow just one of them to be provided for the
lightweight online/offline to be done. In the latter case the
presence of the other callback plays the role of a flag.

Both are basically fine by me, but if you go for the former, please
add the checks to cpufreq_register_driver().
