It's done in the core. It first tries to hit the target voltage to the
maximum (picking the lowest voltage in that range) then tries to pick
the lowest voltage to the target, though that's an implementation detail
and we really should be trying to get as close as possible to the
target. We don't do that yet because it can be expensive to work out so
we do the current thing which is cheap and mostly good enough.
