I don't particularly like the idea of using that vbt field. I'm not aware
of any cases where changing cdclk would be totally busted in the hw, so
I don't really see why this thing should even exist in the vbt, apart
from some questionable marketing purposes. I think there's plenty of
other stuff like that in the vbt which we happily ignore as well.
Depending on how common it is to have it set in the vbt it could also
drastically reduce our testing coverage of the cdclk code.
