I think I've said this before.  The documentation for iMX6 (which is
freely available, unlike Rock-chips documentation, so you can look at
it yourself) specifies that only certain audio and video rates are
supported.  See the iMX6 manuals, the section on the HDMI Tx, sub-
section "CTS calculation".

It clearly states that values which do not appear in the table there
are "not supported".

Adding more rates to this code puts iMX6 outside of its specification.

FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: currently at 10.5Mbps down 400kbps up
according to speedtest.net.
