ti-omap5-opp-supply.txt shows

Required Properties for Device Node:
- vdd-supply: phandle to regulator controlling VDD supply
- vbb-supply: phandle to regulator controlling Body Bias supply
      (Usually Adaptive Body Bias regulator)

Looking at the ti-cpufreq.c driver, it appears as if there is both a
vdd and a vbb listed in the table (line 302).  AFAICT, we should be
able to just set it up pointing VDD to the PMIC and VBB at the ABB
unless I am missing something.

Currently, I have the follwing in my device tree:

/* Reroute power feeding the CPU to come from the external PMIC */
&reg_arm
{
     vin-supply = <&sw1a_reg>;
};

&reg_soc
{
      vin-supply = <&sw1c_reg>;
};

Is this still correct with the new cpufreq driver?   I am wondering if
we need VDD and VBB references under the cpu entry.  The
ti-omap5-opp-supply ready me also reads:

/* Device Node (CPU)  */
cpus {
     cpu0: cpu at 0 {
          device_type = "cpu";

...

          vdd-supply = <&vcc>;
          vbb-supply = <&abb_mpu>;
     };
};

This isn't in the ti-cpufreq.txt, however it might actually be
utilized based on a quick skim of the driver.
