Just that the term performance is closely related to frequency, it needs
to be explicit on what *exactly* it means. As it stands now,
it can be used for OPP as I explain which controls both but as you
clarify that's not what it's designed for.

I am not sure if choosing highest performance point makes it difficult
to fit it in regulator framework. It could be some configuration.
Also IIUC the actual programming is done in the firmware in this case
and I fail to see how that adds lot of platform code.

Yes I understand that.
