Oh, that is always expandable. No one is stopping a platform to have
hw-versions as: cuts_part1 cuts_part2 cuts_part3, and that will give
us 96 bits :)

Probably (opp-)supply-range-name suits well.

s/opp-hz's/opp-microvolt

Within an OPP table, OPP-nodes must have unique frequencies. i.e.
two nodes can't have same frequency.

In simple terms (mapping to your case) it is going to be like:
opp-table will have this:
opp-supply-range-names = "avs1", "avs2", ... , "avsn";

Each OPP node will have
opp-microvolt = <AVS1-volt>, <AVS2-volt>, <AVS3-volt> ... <AVSN-volt>;

The platform with tell opp core to use avsX and OPP core will take
care of rest.

Bindings for this are already present in kernel, so this wasn't new.

So for the pcode thing, probably a separate entry like:
opp-microvolt-pcode0 can be added to make things easy. opp-microvolts
bindings are already added to support multiple regulators, and I don't
really want to touch that again :)

Haha. FWIW, you can't use voltage-tolerance with OPP-v2 bindings as
the triplets have replaced it. Just in case you were planning to use
that :)

So this is based of the solution I proposed. But if we were to choose
the one you gave, it will be:

opp-microvolt-1 = <900000>;
opp-microvolt-2 = <915000>;
opp-microvolt-3 = <915000>;
opp-microvolt-4 = <925000>;
opp-microvolt-5 = <925000>;
opp-microvolt-6 = <925000>;
opp-microvolt-7 = <935000>;
opp-microvolt-8 = <945000>;
opp-microvolt-9 = <945000>;
opp-microvolt-10 = <945000>;
opp-microvolt-11 = <945000>;
opp-microvolt-12 = <955000>;
opp-microvolt-13 = <956000>;
opp-microvolt-14 = <975000>;
opp-microvolt-15 = <975000>;
opp-microvolt-16 = <975000>;

Yeah, all looks fine to me.
