The current behaviour is intentional, we're not modifying max_speed_hz
so we can continue to enforce the kernel limit no matter what userspace
asked for - actually looking at the code we should probably have an
explicit error check in there to reject attempts to raise it here, not
sure why we're not doing that already.
