I now remember when I tried to enable GPU devfreq on H6 and noticed
instability, I made a recap of my searches:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAJiuCce58Gaxf_Qg2cnMwvOgUqYU__eKb3MDX1Fe_+47htg2bA@mail.gmail.com/

And found that Megous gave a possible explanation on linux-sunxi IRC:

20:12 <megi> looks like gpu pll on H6 is NKMP clock, and those are
implemented in such a way in mainline that they are prone to
overshooting the frequency during output divider reduction
20:13 <megi> so disabling P divider may help
20:13 <megi> or fixing the dividers
20:14 <megi> and just allowing N to change
20:22 <megi> hmm, I haven't looked at this for quite some time, but H6
BSP way of setting PLL factors actually makes the most sense out of
everything I've seen/tested so far
20:23 <megi> it waits for lock not after setting NK factors, but after
reducing the M factor (pre-divider)
20:24 <megi> I might as well re-run my CPU PLL tester with this
algorithm, to see if it fixes the lockups
20:26 <megi> it makes sense to wait for PLL to stabilize "after"
changing all the factors that actually affect the VCO, and not just
some of them
20:27 <megi> warpme_: ^
20:28 <megi> it may be the same thing that plagues the CPU PLL rate
changes at runtime

Regards,
Clement
