Out of curiosity, if we're only going to use one value for the opp
voltage, do we need to have 3 listed?  when I looked at the driver
yesterday, it appears to support either 1 or 3 entries per opp.
If we're going to support two regulators, showing them as
opp-microvolt = <1012500>, <1012500>; would be cleaner and can fit on
one line.

Can you send me an updated patch?  I'd like to try to get where you
are that doesn't crash.

I concur with your findings.

I assumed this to be -EINVAL, but I'd be happy to be wrong.
