I couldn't find a lkml link to the exact message earlier, but it was discussed

Driver wants to use this field for +ve and -ve values and it should be free
to do so.... And ~2 was creating problems when he used -3 for this field..
If we make it ~3, then he will face problem for -4..

So, I used a special value 0xABABABAB here whose integer value is:

The only other option we have is to add another field "bool boost" in
cpufreq_frequency_table, which is the last thing I wanted to do.

And that's the point Gautham was trying to make in one of our IRC
chats as well..
