SubjectApplied "spi: a3700: Fix clk prescaling for coefficient over 15" to the spi tree
The patch

spi: a3700: Fix clk prescaling for coefficient over 15

has been applied to the spi tree at

All being well this means that it will be integrated into the linux-next
tree (usually sometime in the next 24 hours) and sent to Linus during
the next merge window (or sooner if it is a bug fix), however if
problems are discovered then the patch may be dropped or reverted.

You may get further e-mails resulting from automated or manual testing
and review of the tree, please engage with people reporting problems and
send followup patches addressing any issues that are reported if needed.

If any updates are required or you are submitting further changes they
should be sent as incremental updates against current git, existing
patches will not be replaced.

Please add any relevant lists and maintainers to the CCs when replying
to this mail.

Subject: [PATCH] spi: a3700: Fix clk prescaling for coefficient over 15

The Armada 3700 SPI controller has 2 ranges of prescaler coefficients.
One ranging from 0 to 15 by steps of 1, and one ranging from 0 to 30 by
steps of 2.

This commit fixes the prescaler coefficients that are over 15 so that it
uses the correct range of values. The prescaling coefficient is rounded
to the upper value if it is odd.

This was tested on Espressobin with spidev and a locigal analyser.
