Ok, so it could easily be tristate then? Why not allow it?

This is only used once? Maybe it could be removed.

And this is only used during probe to figure out the supported
frequencies. So we definitely don't need to store around the registers
after probe in an array of iomem pointers. The only one that we need
after probe is the one below.

With fast switching we can avoid incurring any extra instructions, so
please make another iomem pointer in the cpufreq_qcom struct just for
writing the index or if possible, just pass the iomem pointer that
points to the REG_PERF_STATE as the policy->driver_data variable here.
Then we have the address in hand without any extra load. If my
understanding is correct, we don't need to keep around anything besides
this register address anyway so we should be able to just load it and
write it immediately.
