Hello! I was doing a hardware build in my project with Vitis, and the system guidance report shows that auto frequency scaling has lowered the frequency from 250 MHz to 12.2 MHz. I am wondering how I can disable this auto frequency scaling option in the Vitis IDE? I have read about this article and seems like the feature can be disabled by setting compilation flags, but I am not sure where in the Vitis IDE can I set such flags.
I have poked around and suspect that I can set it with build configuration settings -> edit toolchain compiler settings and pass the flag under V++ Kernel Compiler -> Miscellaneous (please see the screenshot attached below). Is this the correct way to pass on such flags to the compiler?

In the below pic, there are two "Miscellaneous", 1 for compile stage and 2 for link stage.
Only setting the Kernel frequency in "Miscellaneous" for link (2nd red rectangle), the frequency setting will override the default one during Vitis Platform Link stage (Take effect finally).
You can refer to the post for the way to verify whether the kernel frequency setting works or not.
