Instead of making the table constant itself (with its values), seems we can just
make the policy->freq_table pointer constant. I'll try to make a patch for that,
adjusting the pointers in cpufreq core and the drivers. This works for the
acpi-cpufreq at least.

Yes, but that will require to explicitly silencing the compiler warning about
const -> non-const pointer conversion (if you're meaning this pointer
conversion), which generally should be avoided.
