Ok, thanks for testing! Just to note that typical documented value for
1.2GHz mode is 1.155V, so it would be useful to know if this value could
be stable for L1 with 1.2GHz mode.

I'm thinking that for 1GHz variant it would be better to rather use
1.108V like in my original patch as this is already tested by lot of
people, nobody complained yet and it can be lower value as L0 (so there
is benefit to decrease CPU frequency when CPU is idle).

For 1.2GHz variant I still do not know. You wrote that 1.132V is
unstable, so it cannot be used for sure. Documented typical value 1.155V
is bigger, so maybe it can be stable but needs testing. And stable seems
to be L0 value... But then I do not see a benefit for downclocking CPU
from 1.2 GHz frequency in L0 to 600 MHz freq. in L1 if it use same CPU
voltage... But it is still better than unstable CPU with crashes!

Could you test if 1.155V voltage for L1 is stable on 1.2 GHz variant?
