Yeah, but limiting possible changes to the PLLs to one single register
also means that you cannot offer to generate all the frequencies any
more. What could probably be done is refine the algorithm so that it
stays 'as close as possible' to the former values, but I'm not sure how
much work that implies.

Can you provide a patch against Sebastian's v3 to do that? Then it can
be cleanly applied on top of the driver later.
