Not specifically on this patch, but this is what I feel about this issue:

- As we are discussing on the other thread, there is scope of adding
"unknown" field in tables so that people would know that they were
running out of table freq at some point..
- This is a common problem for all drivers/platforms and not only
cpufreq-cpu0, so the solution has to be generic and not driver
specific.. So, atleast I don't want to get this patch in at any cost,
unless there is a generic solution present..
- There are non-dt drivers as well, and so freq table is present
with the kernel and we can't support all frequencies that bootloader
may end up with..
