I imagine that a choice is available here for the error handling strategy.

* Return “ERR_PTR(-ENOMEM)” as a strict response like in the other error case.

* Fix the setting “pll->rate_count” at least (to be a bit more tolerant).
Would any system users wonder then about the availability of only
a single frequency (instead of possibly expected alternatives)?
