One of the questions you are asked (by Arnd) was whether the period
could ever be larger than UINT_MAX. I think you gave the wrong answer
to that question when you said the divisor could be 64-bit. For this
driver I don't see how the period could ever be larger than 1000000000
(a number that is approximately 4x smaller than UINT_MAX).

The short circuit must go because it is broken and we wouldn't want
that code copied somewhere where the code would actually be reachable.
Personally I don't much care which macro you use although given the
divisor cannot be greater then UINT_MAX I guess DIV_ROUND_CLOSEST
is marginally better.
