Well, there's two approaches the driver can take: one is to change the
EPLL to deliver the clock rates which allow maximum flexibility, the
other is to constrain the clock rates offered to applications based on
the frequencies that can be generated from the current EPLL setup.

That'd be the problem, kind of - it does mean people can get burned when
they pick up the BSP code and use it as a reference for their systems.

plat-samsung would probably be fine for that also - create a file called
common-smdk or something.  Some other things have gone for a plat-smdk
style approach too, though I'm not sure how tasteful I find that
