I'd actually like to get Rob and Mark's views on this one.  Previously
I would just have applied it without thinking on the basis these can
be easily specified from devicetree.

Recent discussions with Rob have suggested that the settings in devicetree
should perhaps be concerned with specifying constraints about the device
that are not visible to the driver.  The driver itself should apply
the device constraints, but there are others such as wiring that
might reduce the maximum frequency for example...

So should a driver be clamping an over specified value from DT for
example?  Or given that is optional in DT, should it be making sure
that a controller max frequency isn't too high for the sensor?

It seems to be unusual to do this, but to my mind it would make
sense and might be worth pushing out into more drivers.
