Thought about specifying 1. cyclecounter read func 2. frequency 3. width
of counter as parameters here
which can get rid of mult, shift params. But this is not easy as most of
the drivers do not specify
cyclecounter frequency and instead hard-code the mult/shift factors.
How about passing initialized cyclecounter struct?
