Actually target index will still be re-calculated if the platform
target driver wants to retrieve the index from the valid frequency or
directly set the valid frequency in the clock controller. So I wanted
a simpler/quicker cpufreq_frequency_table_target which just returns
the matching index from the valid frequency.
