Sort of neither, it's really a bug with the devicetrees.

You can use the maximum-frequency binding to make things go slow enough
to paper over phase issues. This helped us limp along early on.
But really it depends on how bad the issues are at a given speed.

Maybe the above is enough of a crutch?
