I don't think this ever worked.

No. But I do rely on the rate setting op to be called when a new min or max
rate would cause the rate to be changed even when there is no new rate request.

Eg:

min = 100MHz, max = 500MHz, current rate request is 400MHz, then max changes to
300MHz. Today the rate setting op will not be called, while I think it should
be called to lower the rate to 300MHz.
