iMX6 - CPU frequency lowered during LDO bypass setting

We are using imx6Q sabresd platform for our development with Linux 3.14.28_1.0.0-GA BSP but initially we used Linux 3.10.17_1.0.0-GA BSP.


We have gone through below files from Linux 3.14.28_1.0.0-GA(File-1) and Linux 3.10.17_1.0.0-GA (FIle-2) BSPs.

File-1: ~/u-boot-imx/board/freescale/mx6sabresd/mx6sabresd.c

File-2: ~/u-boot-imx/board/freescale/mx6qsabresd/mx6qsabresd.c


We could see some changes are added in File-1(compare to File-2).

In below function, we understood that the CPU frequency is lowered to 400Mhz before doing the LDO bypass and CPU frequency is increased to 800Mhz after the LDO bypass settings.



In FIle-2 (Linux 3.10.17_1.0.0-GA), the below function will do the LDO bypass settings without changing the CPU frequency.



We would like to know, during the LDO bypass settings why the CPU frequency is lowered in File-1(Linux 3.14.28_1.0.0-GA)?  Is it recommended  to do the same.?



Thank You,
