I would like to keep a separate file for this, it looks awkward to update the
driver for any new user platform.

I added a separate symbol to take care of the Modular case of cpufreq-dt. i.e. I
didn't wanted to add module_exit() code in the new file. Currently, it gets
included in the kernel even if cpufreq-dt is selected as a Module, so we just
create the platform-device just once and never touch it again.
