Hello Stephen,

Thank you for your comment.
I'll add detail description and send it.

Best Regards,

Custom approximation of fractional-divider may not need parent clock
rate checking. For example Rockchip SoCs work fine using grand parent
clock rate evne if target rate is greater than parent.

This patch removes parent clock rate check from custom approximation.

Is your fraction multiplying the rate up? If it's a divider it shouldn't
be increasing the rate more than whatever the parent is supplying so
this looks odd. How does the grandparent matter here? Maybe you can show
the example in the commit text so we can all understand what's going on

return *parent_rate;
