I'll try to explain but I might need Stephen or some of the other folks to jump
in and save me.

On sdm845 there are shared power resources controlled by the RPMh which is
programed by a series of commands from the regulator driver; but in the case
of the GPU the votes are passed to the GMU (graphics management unit) which
communicates with the RPMh on behalf of the GPU.

In order to construct the RPMh vote we need first need a voltage level that we
can look up in a database. qcom,arc-level is the voltage level associated with
a specific OPP.

I had previously been abusing this with opp-microvolt but that was wrong for
obvious reasons and then Stephen pointed out that this would be a better way.
