reports that reducing the maximum CPU frequency can improve this a bit on these boards.
However, I can't find any cpufreq-related tunables for any of the CPUs:

It looks like everything related to SUNXI or CPUFREQ in the kernel config is either a
module or built into the kernel. I've found some other threads talking about ensuring
the right CONFIG_REGULATOR_* options are enabled, but I'm not sure what the correct
one might be for this board.
Am I missing something important here to regulate the CPU frequency? Thanks!
After more digging, I found that the device tree has no 'operating-points' for the
It appears that cpufreq_dt has no idea how to handle CPU frequencies without knowing the
voltage/frequency relationship. Is this something that the vendor must provide?
