First of all I am really happy that someone apart from me is using this debug
interface :)

At least that patch was correct and if we have to fix something, it should be
fixed somewhere else.

I tried to reproduce the issue on hikey and straight away understood why it is
behaving that way. There is no "cpu-supply" property defined for the CPUs.

I looked at juno driver and couldn't see any references to voltage there. Are
you trying to add that support ?

Anyway, this should still be fixed irrespective of the "cpu-supply" property.
The other fix you mentioned about setting opp_table->regulator_count to 1 is
actually the right thing to do but the fix may require changes at multiple
places. I can help writing a patch for that if you want, else I am open to you
giving it a shot :)
