> When CPU frequency is at 250 MHz and set_rate() is called with 500 MHz (L1)
> quickly followed by a call with 1 GHz (L0), the CPU does not necessarily
> stay in L1 for at least 20ms as is required by Marvell errata.
> This situation happens frequently with the ondemand cpufreq governor and
> can be also reproduced with userspace governor. In most cases it causes CPU
> to crash.
> This change fixes the above issue and ensures that the CPU always stays in
> L1 for at least 20ms when switching from any state to L0.
