So does it actually matter what the frequency is when you idle? Isn't
the whole thing clock gated anyway?

Because this seems to generate contradictory requirements, on the one
hand we want to stay idle as long as possible while on the other hand
you seem to want to clock down while idle, which requires not being

If it matters; should not your idle state muck explicitly set/restore
