One last questions, and this probably directed at Sekhar, but what
happens if you modify the OPP for the boards with fixed regulators to
enable all the frequencies but with the only available voltage. Is
there harm is running the processor at a higher voltage than
necessary? I did some quick experiments on a different ARM board and
I saw some changes in power consumption. I would think some power
savings might be better than none, but I don't know if it causes
damage.
