If you turn off the DFLL, you have to be aware that the voltage margins
for DFLL use are lower than for PLL use. So you either need to be sure
to switch to a frequency below fmax @ Vmin or you program the boot
voltage and then you can use PLLX as setup by the bootloader. For OVR
regulators you can't program a voltage without the DFLL, so you have to
tristate the PWM output which will give you a hardwired boot voltage.
