clk_set_rate() for CPUs clock is responsible to change clock rate
of the CPU. Whether it plays with PLLs or muxes, its not that relevant.

CPUFreq wants to change to intermediate frequency by itself against
some magic change behind the scene. The major requirement for that
comes from the fact that we want to send PRE/POST freq notifiers on
which loops-per-jiffie depends.
