This reverts commit ef3caabee9691386e6801ea92150e37277db9c7a.

The commit was based on the assumption that a platform with voltages
specified with individual OPPs, would have registered a regulator as
well in order to do full DVFS.

That assumption is broken by the Tegra124 platform.

For Tegra124, the voltage is not scaled via a direct call to the
regulator subsystem because the DFLL directly controls the I2C interface
that controls the voltage. The DFLL essentially figures out the max
frequency for a given voltage. So to run at a particular frequency, the
DFLL continuously adjusts the voltage in a control loop fashion to get
the desired frequency.

Following are the logs from: NVIDIA Tegra124 Jetson TK1

  cpufreq: cpufreq_online: CPU0: Running at unlisted freq: 696000 KHz
  cpu cpu0: dev_pm_opp_set_rate: Regulator not registered with OPP core
  cpufreq: __target_index: Failed to change cpu frequency: -22
  ------------[ cut here ]------------
  kernel BUG at drivers/cpufreq/cpufreq.c:1235!

Fix these by reverting the offending commit.

Rafael, you can simply drop the patch if that is easier for you.
