that's because the cpufreq-cpu0 driver (that's built-in) requires the tsp65217 regulator driver that is compiled as a module (and not available during boot).

While it's only a warning and it goes away when the rootfs is mounted (and the tps65217_regulator module is loaded), it's annoying and it spams the syslog.
