I have updated the commit log a bit more to clarify on things, please let me
know if it looks okay.
opp: Don't overwrite rounded clk rate
The OPP table normally contains 'fmax' values corresponding to the
voltage or performance levels of each OPP, but we don't necessarily want
all the devices to run at fmax all the time. Running at fmax makes sense
for devices like CPU/GPU, which have a finite amount of work to do and
since a specific amount of energy is consumed at an OPP, its better to
run at the highest possible frequency for that voltage value.
On the other hand, we have IO devices which need to run at specific
frequencies only for their proper functioning, instead of maximum
The OPP core currently roundup to the next possible OPP for a frequency
and select the fmax value. To support the IO devices by the OPP core,
lets do the roundup to fetch the voltage or performance state values,
but not use the OPP frequency value. Rather use the value returned by
The current user, cpufreq, of dev_pm_opp_set_rate() already does the
rounding to the next OPP before calling this routine and it won't
have any side affects because of this change.
