OK, should we assign the OPP table to the CPU cores then in the
soc.dtsi (instead of board.dts like the other patches from this series
do)?

we can still do that in a second step, so I'm all for starting with
the "conservative" OPP table and then improve performance (by having
detecting the SoC and using the correct OPP table)
