Yes, it makes more sense to me to pass the actual frequency and not do
the '* 1000000'.

Also--I should have thought of this earlier--there should probably be a
patch to add a default platform_data entry in arch/ppc/syslib/mv64x60.c
and a patch for katana.c if the defaults in mv64x60.c aren't correct
for the katana.  At least, that's how things are done now.
