If you've got a limit that exists in the IP the hard code it in the

If the limit the controller has is not coming from the clock tree then
presumably it's a physical limitation of the silicon and isn't going to
vary per board. If the limit is coming from the board then it should be
specified per slave since different slaves may have different
requirements on different boards.
