Yes indeed, the discussion thread I linked here was mostly interesting
because Hugues tried to do the same for LINK_FREQ iirc, and there
where some usefult pointers.

As reported by Hugues findings, the PLL calculation procedure might be
faulty, and the actuall frequencies on the bus are different from the
calculated ones.

I wish I had more time to re-look at that, as they worked for my and
Sam's use case, but deserve some rework.

It seems to me you're reporting a fixed rate. It might make your
receiver happy, but does not report what is acutally put on the bus.
Am I missing something ?

As Sakari pointed out, going from one to the other is trivial and
could be done on top.
