Yes, good point! And as the wait clock counter is based on the actual
SPI_CLK and not the mod clock, I need to calculate the exact clock
myself before handling the wait clock setting. Will amend the patch
and send a new version.

While looking into this, I also noticed a problem with a previous
patch of mine, which changed the spi-sun[46]i to use
transfer->speed_hz instead of the spi->max_speed_hz: I also changed
the mclk_rate calculation to be based on tfr->speed_hz, which should
have stayed with spi->max_speed_hz. In the current state, the clock
calculations only ever increase mclk_rate, wich leads to very
different clocks being set depending on which clock was used on the
previous transfer. Will send a fix for that as well in a separate
