Thanks for the review. Yes that's correct. I also tried to make it
backwards compatible with the current version of the driver where you
can ignore configuring the frequency. The result being ref clock
frequency / 2 * 255. If you provide the clock then it will
enable/prepare it. If you also provide clock-frequency then it will
configure the SPBR. If you don't provide anything then it works as
before - it assumes the clock is already enabled and uses the h/w
default SPBR.
