If we can assume that it is either ascending or descending, but not
random order than a simple check if freq_table[0] <
freq_table[max_state - 1] would be sufficient.

Otherwise we could also determine the min/max after initialization and
save the result, though that would leave us with yet another frequency
pair, which might be confusing, especially if we don't come up with
good names to distinguish between them.
