Hi Tomi,

how far is far enough to emit a warning? On da850 the requested rate
is 228000000 Hz, while the calculated divider is 6, which results in
the real rate of 225000000 Hz. This is less than 1% difference -
should we take this value as reference?

I'll apply all other requested changes.

Best regards,
