...but in this case, as soon as cpufreq is ready the problem is gone
anyway, because it sees the big cluster's clock rate is way out-of-spec
and bumps it up to a sane OPP.

It really is unfortunate that so many RK3399 images out there are using
the broken firmware combination that manages to miss out the boot-time
PLL setup altogether.
