Not sure how this affects it.

(Please wrap your lines at 80 columns, it makes it harder to read
otherwise).

I think only the counters stopping on idle can get us that.

I think this is expected since the hardware is in control of frequency
here. The software can only request it to run at X frequency, the
hardware may choose to do something else nevertheless.
