If it is a true feature of the device (i.e. if in the case of perfect
front end electronics) this is the right option, then a default makes
a lot of sense. If that isn't the case (I suspect not) then if we
drop it be optional chances are no one will bother thinking about it
or trying to tune this at all.

Hence seems wrong to put a fairly arbitrary default value on it.
However, we do need to still work with old device trees and new kernels
so need to cope without it.

Hence to my mind, if we had started out with this in the first driver
version, then the default would be a bad idea. As we didn't then we
really need to cope with nothing specified (as best we can) and so
we do need a sensible default (or perhaps even sensible worst
case default) in there.
