There are two coupled regulators: CPU and CORE.

Constraints:

1) The max-spread voltage is 300mV.

2) CORE voltage must be higher than the CPU by at least N mV, where N
varies depending on the CPU voltage.

3) There is a constraint on the maximum CORE voltage depending on
hardware model/revision (cpu_speedo_id) where a higher voltages
apparently may cause physical damage, so it's better to hardcode the
limitation in the code rather than to rely on a board's device-tree
description. This constraint is quite vaguely defined in the downstream
kernel, I'm not really sure if it's solely about the hardware safety.
