What about?

"In the case of asymmetric SoC with the same micro-architecture, we
have a group of CPUs with smaller OPPs than the other group. One
example is the 96boards dragonboard 820c. There is no dmips/MHz
difference between both groups, so no need to specify the values in
the DT. Unfortunately, without these defined, there is no scaling
capacity computation triggered, so we need to write
'capacity-dmips-mhz' for each CPU with the same value in order to
force the scaled capacity computation.

In order to fix this situation, allocate 'raw_capacity' so the pointer
is set and the init_cpu_capacity_callback() function can be called."
