The API is about changing the values after they are parsed once from DT. You can
change it once or multiple times depending on the use case.

You shouldn't be required to use the notifier. Just add the OPP table and update
the values right after that. So no one would be using the values at that time.

Will this patchset solve the problems for you and make your DT light weight ?
