Hm... Is there maybe a dependency on u-boot?

We are using a quite old version which may boot with vdd_mpu_iva
as 300 MHz while yours may have a different clock.

What we could do is augment the printk (or dev_err) to tell
in these warnings what it is looking for...

	opp = dev_pm_opp_find_freq_ceil(dev, &freq);
	if (IS_ERR(opp)) {
		pr_err("%s: unable to find boot up OPP for vdd_%s freq %ulHz\n",
		__func__, vdd_name, freq);
		goto exit;

Well, I not aware of documentation of such dependencies and there
is also some confusion what vdd_mpu_iva exactly is and what vdd_core is.
twl4030 has vdd1 and vdd2 but their relationship isn't clear either.

Maybe Tero or Nisanth can clarify?

BR and thanks,
