SubjectRe: [PATCH v3] clk: fractional-divider: fix up the fractional clk's jitter
Date
Hi Elaine,

sorry this took a bit longer, but I didn't manage to find the time to
respond properly until now.

The code below does go into the right direction, but I'd really like to
have the full approximation overrideable. The reason is that while on
Rockchip SoCs it's enough to increase the parent rate, other socs might
have completely different requirements when determining numerator
and denominator.

So I've taken the time and modified your patch into 2 that look like I
would envision it - compile-tested only, so please test :-)
But essentially it only moves some things around but should be
functionally equivalent to your patch.

I'll add the patches as replies to this mail.


Two more things to keep in mind for the future below:

not needed, as fd is allocated via kzalloc, so this is already NULL.
Also it is nicer to spell approximation full (which I've done in my rework)

Please keep the spacing in line with other elements. Somehow
here spaces instead of a tab slipped in between void and (*appro...
