Do you offer to write some code? Back in 2005, we had some code to
over-/underclock hypertransport links. That code has been dropped, though.

Even if some new code for overclocking will be written, there is still
the question whether we want such code in LinuxBIOS. Usually people
blame the stuff which gives them the ability to shoot themselves in the
foot. I don't want people blaming LinuxBIOS because it allowed them to
overclock their machines until the hardware failed.
