How to reduce CPU operating frequency on iMX8MM?

I built an embedded linux for my board, the board uses iMX8MM CPU.
BSP information is as follows:
manifest: imx-6.1.36-2.1.0.xml
git: https://github.com/nxp-imx/imx-manifest
branch: imx-linux-mickledore
Information about CPU clock is as follows:
scaling_governor: ondemand
scaling_available_frequencies: 1200000 1600000
scaling_available_governors: conservative ondemand userspace powersave performance schedutil
scaling_max_freq: 1600000
scaling_min_freq: 1200000
scaling_cur_freq: 1200000
So the system is running at 1200000, which is also the lowest frequency. However, I want it to be even lower, but I can't set other frequencies (example 400 Mhz, 800 Mhz). Please guide me how to make CPU run from 800 Mhz to 1.6 Ghz.

current bsp only support 1.8G, 1.6G and 1.2G

if you need support more frequency, you can add in the table opp-table , and don't forget add the clock in the imx8mm_intpll_tbl of clk-imx8mm.c

Hi joanxie,
I cannot find imx8mm_intpll_tbl in clk-imx8mm.c. Please checkthe file and show me where to add the clock.
