Subject: [PATCH V8 3/3] OPP: Allow "opp-hz" and "opp-microvolt" to contain magic values

On some platforms the exact frequency or voltage may be hidden from the
OS by the firmware. Allow such configurations to pass magic values in
the "opp-hz" or the "opp-microvolt" properties, which should be
interpreted in a platform dependent way.
