Yeah, we are stuck on that for now.

Yeah, so I also proposed this yesterday that we stick to only these
two implementations for now. And was looking at how would the
cpufreq-generic driver come to know about this.

So, one way out now is to see if "clocks" property is defined in
multiple cpu nodes, if yes don't compare them and consider separate
clocks for each cpu. We don't have to try matching that to any other
node, as that's a very bad idea. Mike was already very upset with that :)

@Stephen/Rafael: Does that sound any better? Ofcourse the final thing
is to get bindings to figure out relations between CPUs..
