Well, the explanation given was, it was not stable because of the missing
regulator support. I don't know whether anyboady actually ever reported
it wouldn't run fine at 1008MHz with 1.45V. So the actual point should be
whether we wan't voltages that are out of the specified range in the
official kernel. The consensus seems to be no, with good reasons for that.
So, I won't object this.

Same as above.
