I would oppose here. According to my information, VDDint depends on peripheral 
clock frequencies not ARM frequency and it should be 1.25V (min 1.15, max 1.3) 
for HCLK at 133 MHz and 1.05V (min 0.95, max 1.3) for HCLK running at 66 MHz.

Anyway, the behavior will probably vary from board to board, so I would rather 
think about extending s3c64xx-cpufreq driver to allow per board 
frequency/voltage configuration., which would also include settings optimized 
for your boards in their board-specific code.

This would also solve a major problem of current s3c64xx-cpufreq 
implementation, namely crashing boards running in synchronous mode, because of 
odd frequencies specified, like 200 MHz (achievable with PLL set to 800 MHz), 
while the requirement is to keep the ARM frequency a multiple of HCLK when 
running synchronously.

I have two boards running in synchronous mode (Samsung Galaxy GT-i5700 phone 
and FriendlyARM Tiny6410 board), I might be able to test things related to 
synchronous mode.
