I see it as this: There is a clock in system for cpu, call it "cpu". Now we
must be able to provide get/set routines for it. A set should set the
frequency to whatever is asked for and should really worry about how
that is being set. This part is internal to "cpu" clk.

This is what cpufreq-cpu0 driver should expect and does. Current "cpu"
clock implemented doesn't provide this facility ? And so this wrapper
made sense to me.
