The OPP should come from the DT, but unfortunately DT and Tegra's
devfreq driver wasn't designed like that from the start, so it will take
some extra effort to re-do it properly now. I wanted to postpone that
effort a tad and get at least the basics upstreamed for the starter.

I'll try to add a proper OPP table with freqs and voltages, will see how
it goes. We will need to do it sooner or later anyways. So perhaps it's
fine to drop the current approach with the clk_round_rate_unboundly()
and re-focus on a proper OPP implementation.

Thank you for getting back and replying to this topic :)
