I can't speak for the Exynos hardware. Maybe Chanwoo knows.

But a couple of common reasons to do this between devices are:
1. These were the combination of frequencies that were
validated/screen during the manufacturing process.
2. These are the sensible performance combinations between two devices
interacting with each other. So that when one runs fast the other
doesn't become the bottleneck.
3. Hardware bugs requiring some kind of frequency ratio between devices.

All of the cases above are some real world scenarios I've come across.
CPU and L2/L3 on ARM systems are a good example of (2) but the passive
governor doesn't work with CPUs yet. But I plan to work on that later
as that's not related to this patch series.
