Oops, I wanted to say when odt_enable changes since last call.

So, for a reason that I ignore, if we try to save unecessary calls to
ROCKCHIP_SIP_CONFIG_DRAM_SET_ODT_PD (odt_enable has not changed since
last call), we get stalled in the call to ROCKCHIP_SIP_CONFIG_SET_RAGE
that follows. The function arm_smccc_smc never returns and the device
hard hang.

Thanks to your remark, I have also fixed an issue with the odt_dis_freq
value. Its value is initialized to 0 in the probe function. Thus the
odt_enable is always true (target_rate > 0). I moved its initialization
after the timings are parsed from the device-tree; its value is now none
zero (333000000 in my case).
