Strange comment, in deed. Given the paragraph before, I would guess Gen1
maybe had a "fitting" PMIC where SoC/PMIC handled DVFS kind of magically
with this automatic transfer feature? And Gen2 has not.

From a "describe the HW" point of view, this still makes sense to me.
Although, it is unlikely we will add support for the automatic
transmission feature (maybe famous last words).

Okay, but we can fix DTs when they have bugs, or?
