This case happens at least whenever CPU's freq accounting returns
KHZ_MAX, please see actmon_emc_ratios[] and actmon_cpu_to_emc_rate().

It is possible to get sampled avg_count from hardware that results in
target_freq > max_freq because translating number of memory events to
memory frequency has some calculation error, although it is negligible.

In fact, it shouldn't matter that the returned target_freq > max_freq
with the current driver's code structure and in the commit's message I
wrote that this change is done for consistency. Hence it should be okay
to drop this patch as well.
