The perf domain is registered here but not unregistered in exit()
(there is currently no API do do this). When init() is called for the
second (or third, ...) time em_register_perf_domain() is called again,
though it skips the registration. To make things more explicit and not
rely on internal behavior of em_register_perf_domain() you could place
the registration inside an 'if (!em_cpu_get(cpu))' branch.

You should probably check the return value of em_register_perf_domain()
and at least print a warning in case of failure. This would require to
call em_register_perf_domain() only when CONFIG_ENERGY_MODEL=y (the
function returns -EINVAL otherwise).

I think this patch will result in error messages at registration on
platforms that use the cpufreq-dt driver and don't specify
'dynamic-power-coefficient' for the CPUs in the DT. Not sure if that's
a problem as long as the cpufreq initialization succeeds regardless,
it could be seen as a not-so-gentle nudge to add the values.

Cheers

Matthias
