I was under the impression that cpufreq-dt would still initialize even
if the regulator is not ready yet. however (after reading the code
again) this is clearly NOT the case.

there's still a benefit with this change: your Odroid-C1 in your
KernelCI lab would also be able to change the CPU frequency (so in
case something breaks we could spot it there).
will you accept this patch after I updated the description to mention
that it's for KernelCI test coverage?


Regards
Martin
