And this series (rightly) does not make it an OPP behavior. instead
all it does is to list the boost-frequencies and mark those in cpufreq
table. the description is left to the dts and implementation to the
clock drivers involved.

That will be a different problem -> as currently every single
frequency in the cpufreq list has ability to be marked as boost
frequency - if userspace does not maintain that, then, IMHO, fix the
userspace :D
