    DVFS for the ARM cores is going in for 3.4 - that's not what Aneesh is
    referring to. The changes here pertain to DVFS for core devices. Core
    devices include the EMIF as well as several other devices. Core DVFS is
    much more challenging to implement cleanly. It has clock framework and
    driver dependencies. So it probably won't be ready for several months at
    the very least.
