Why wouldn't userspace assure that?

That's why I want to get to the motive behind this patch.
AFAIU, we are checking if its fine to switch to available frequencies
or not and if yes, do we actually switch to those. Right?

For, this testcase we just need a single test and I still don't see why
performance is better than userspace?

That's a different test then. And that's how it should be presented.
So, probably another option to the script, which isn't forced on people.
