Subject: "User selectable freq scaling governor"

"User selectable freq scaling governor"

Hi,

A setting for user selectable freq scaling governor (for ibasso players)
was added in 040306a. Can anyone explain why this is needed? It's a
setting that the vast majority of users will have no clue about, while
those who actually know what it means won't know what to set it to.

I would expect that for rockbox use, one of those possible governors
will consistently be the best one to use. I'd suggest figuring out which
one that is and then using it. For developer experiments, a debug menu
item is a good way to play with this, but a user-visible setting?
Really?

Frank
