It's a little unfortunate to have to make the assumption that the rise
time for a board is going to be the maximum the spec allows.  I think
this is something that's better to let a board specify in the device
tree.  Allowing us to specify it also gives us a little extra slop and
makes it easier to specify a "fall time" without affecting the
resulting frequency.  Right now your code assumes that the fall time
is 0.

I've prototyped what things could look like if the rise and fall times
were specified in the device tree.  You can see my patch (atop yours)


...perhaps you could squash that into your patch and post up v2?
