Maybe? Or maybe the cpufreq driver could detect this situation and
handle it internally. In the vendor tree this the cpufreq driver has a
special fsl,arm-soc-shared property for this anyway.

I posted another RFC at upstreaming ldo-bypass recently but it did not
handle this particular case of a shared input rail. It can be handled


But getting that series to an acceptable state might take a long time.
