On GXBB, GXL, GXM and AXG SoCs, CPU Frequency setting and PWM Regulator setup is
done by the SCPI Co-processor via the SCPI protocol.
Thus, we should not handle it from Linux, and even if we could, we don't have the
registers documentation of the CPU clusters clock tree.
SCPI works fine on all tested devices, except Odroid-C2, because Hardkernel left
the > 1.5GHz freq in the initial SCPI tables loaded by the BL2, i.e. packed with U-Boot.
Nowadays they have removed the bad frequencies, but still some devices uses the old
But in the SCPI case we trust the table returned by the firmware and use it as-in,
and there is no (simple ?) way to override the table and set a max frequency.
This is why we disabled SCPI.
