Oh I get it. This is pretty opaque, since this table is saying "here
are the bandwidth values that happen to work out to a Core2X clock
rate of N". But it's not obvious why setting the Core2X clock rate to
N is desirable or appropriate. The answer seems to be hardware guys
told us these thresholds work well in practice. And if I'm reading
into it more, probably they're saying these bandwidths are too low to
be worth dynamically managing beyond on/off.

At the very least we should explain some of this in the comment above
these defines. Something like:
/* Define bandwidth thresholds that cause the underlying Core 2X
interconnect clock to run at the named frequency. These baseline
values are recommended by the hardware team, and are not dynamically
scaled with GENI bandwidth beyond basic on/off. */
