Umm.. why would I be here? because of_init_opp_table(cpu_dev) did not
find any OPPs at all. but that is OK, coz, we expect dynamic addition
of OPPs by someone else... now,

case 1:
if I did have few OPPs in DT (of_init_opp_table) and cpufreq_init gets
called *before* my dynamic OPPs are added(example based on efuse
entries) -> I'd already have built my dev_pm_opp_init_cpufreq_table
and that wont be accurate. but at that point dev_pm_opp_get_opp_count
cant fail either.. and if cpufreq_init was called *after* dynamic OPPs
are added - correct table, AND dev_pm_opp_get_opp_count wont fail either.

case 2:
If I had 0 OPPs in DT (of_init_opp_table fails) and cpufreq_init gets
called *before* my dynamic OPPs are added(example based on efuse
entries) -> doing a goto out_free_opp and of_free_opp_table is of no
use at all..

case 3:
If I had 0 OPPs in DT (of_init_opp_table fails) and cpufreq_init gets
called *after* my dynamic OPPs are added(example based on efuse
entries) -> I wont have error dev_pm_opp_get_opp_count.

So, you'd better want to introduce an intermediate goto for of_node_put

Also, please use dev_dbg instead of pr_*, since you already have
cpu_dev pointer.
