Will do.

I agree. Only one caveat with OPP is that if a device isn't using OPP to
do any voltage scaling, then it forces a voltage column with 0s. Also,
even if we make OPP mandatory, we'll still want trans_stats that
currently seem to depend on freq_table being populated. I was actually
planning on sending out more patches later that'll do a lot of stuff
automatically for devices with OPP. Like creating freq_table, etc.
